Meet the Governing Body

After leaving school, Margaret joined the District Bank in Nuneaton, which became part of NatWest. She made this her career and in 1980 became an associate of the Institute of Bankers. Leaving the bank when her daughter was born and after a while became a churchwarden.

 

From that she was invited to take on many roles in the voluntary sector, including in 2009, as a school governor. This has been a sharp learning curve, but very rewarding knowing you are doing your best for a future generation.
