Shirley Clench

I became a Parent Governor in 2009. I decided to apply for the position as I had been very involved in the PTA and wanted to extend my support to a more active role in the governance of the school.

I am now Vice-Chair of the Governing Body and Chair of the Achievement and Curriculum Committee. Additionally I am a member of the Resources Committee. I am particularly interested in the progression of children over the years and how we can help them develop and fulfil their full potential.

I had a 20 year career in International Insurance Broking and the experience gained has been very valuable in my role as a Governor, particularly in understanding the commercial side of running a school and in management and recruitment.

I have one son currently at Balgowan. My oldest son also attended and has now moved onto Langley Park School for Boys.
