Francis began in 2016 as a parent governor at HT and is now a foundation governor. He is an active member of St Mary’s Church, Mortlake where he got married and had all three children christened. They have all attended HT, before moving on to secondary school. Being a governor has enabled him to contribute to the life of the school, play an important part in the community and help HT live out its Vision of loving learning, each other and God. Francis’ background as a surveyor and project manager has brought useful skills to the governing body particularly in his role as Link Governor for Health & Safety. In addition to sitting on the Resources committee, Francis chairs the Pupils, Parents & Community Committee and is the Safeguarding Governor. He lived across the road from his small rural primary school, a great advantage when running late for registration, and his early memories are of summer afternoons playing rounders.
