Personal Statement

I am a Parent Governor and I was elected as the Chair of Governors in 2018.  Both of my children attended St Bridget's School and they now attend a local secondary school.  I have extensive experience in Higher Education.  Until July 2019 I was the Head of Department for Early Childhood Studies at Liverpool Hope University.  I now work at the University of Liverpool as a Senior Academic Developer supporting academic colleagues with their learning and teaching practice development.  My PhD focused on the crucial role that childhood relationships have upon the identity formation of young people. I am enjoying working with and supporting the staff and children at St Bridget's.  It is a privilege to be involved with such an excellent school that is built upon a Christian ethos.
