Robert Crossley – Parent Governor
I am a Parent Governor with two teenage children at the school. My son is a keen sportsman currently in his final GCSE year, and my daughter is a talented musician and scientist who is now revising for her A level finals.
When my time is my own I enjoy following a local football team, eating out and travelling. I also have a great fondness for the performing arts so I am delighted to receive regular invites from the school to attend drama, music and dance productions that both entertain and provide an exemplar window into the work and talents of our students.
I have 30 years of experience in manufacturing and engineering having started out as a machine setter and now currently work as a mechanical design engineer. Since Mathematics and Science are the cornerstones of engineering and manufacturing I naturally take a strong interest in the development and provision of these core subjects.
Extensive experience with applying business improvement techniques and my intrinsically curious nature enable me to feel at home with the large amounts of information and data that exists around the school. I find my investigative skills highly beneficial during board meetings and when meeting staff during classroom visits.
