I was brought up in Coventry and attended Princethorpe College from 1977 to 1982. Both my children are currently pupils at the college.
After A levels I studied Physics at Imperial College and remained living and working around London until 1996 when I moved back to Warwickshire. I recently retired from my role as Vice President at a global IT company, where I worked for over 30 years in a number of technical, operational, managerial and business development roles.
I was introduced to climbing mountains by inspiring teachers at Princethorpe, I remain active and enthusiastic. I therefore particularly appreciate the environment that Princethorpe provides which complements academic challenge with sound ethical values and the opportunity to experience a wide range of extracurricular activities that may enrich the lives of pupils for years to come.
