Co-opted Govenor - Chair of Governors

Chris Shepherd

Chris Shepherd BSc CEng MIET

I have lived in Swindon for 15 years with my wife.

I graduated with a degree in Physics with Electronics in 1983 and have worked as an electronics engineer since, I currently work at the Great Western Hospital as a Biomedical Technician.

I have been a school governor for around thirty years, most recently at Lydiard Park Academy, where I was Chair of the Personnel Committee until 2016 and remain a Member of the Parks Academies Trust. I became a governor at Nythe in 2016 and was elected to Chair of the Governing Body in 2017.

I have always been interested in education and feel that acting as a governor allows me to put my personal skills and experience to practical use. I enjoy being a governor as it gives me an insight into the decisions being made by the Senior Leadership Team and the reasons for them. We discuss these decisions and challenge them when necessary. We can also make our recommendations/suggestions which we hope helps the school and the pupils.

Ben Clare - Co-opted Governor

My name is Ben Clare and I have lived in the Nythe area since 2005. I have two children, one of which attends Nythe primary school and the other Nythe pre – school. I am pleased to have been elected onto the board of governors and during my time I will do my best to ensure that the school continues to progress and continues to cater for the individual needs of all of the pupils in the school.

I have a background in teaching as a Geography specialist and teacher of Humanities since 2001 and in Swindon since 2003.
