Cindy Bull, Chair of Governors -
I joined the Governing Board of The Mandeville School in May 2016 as Chair of Governors, having been co-opted from a group of experienced Buckinghamshire Governors. I am excited to be joining the school at this point, and I hope to be able to serve the school in supporting The Principal and staff in their aspiration to deliver an excellent education to all students in the school.
I have been a school governor since July 2000 when my daughter first started at Mill Lane Primary School in Chinnor and I became a Parent Governor there. My two sons later joined their sister there. The school went through a period of growth, and as Chair of Governors I was involved in negotiations with the LEA to increase and improve the classroom and facilities provision.
In July 2006 I stepped down from the Governing Body at Mill Lane and in November 2006 I became a Parent Governor at Aylesbury High School. At Aylesbury High School I became Chair of Governors during the period of time when the school converted to an Academy, and worked hard to improve to obtain an Outstanding rating by Ofsted in 2012.
I strongly believe that my own education has made a big difference in my life, opening up many opportunities, not least my career in Information and IT Management in the pharmaceutical industry. This drives my motivation to be a school governor, to be able to give service to education to enable young people to benefit from a great start in life.
