Jack has over 35 years’ service in the education sector, serving as a school governor in one capacity or another. For 10 years Jack has served as a Chair of Governors / Chair of an Academy Board.

Jack was recruited as a Chair when two failing local schools amalgamated and began a journey of improvement. Jack appointed a new Headteacher and they both quickly developed a new senior leadership team that in turn supported the school in achieving an Outstanding Ofsted judgement.
