I have been the Vicar of Adderbury with Milton since 2002 and continue the long line of Vicars who have fostered education in the village right back to Christopher Rawlins in Tudor times, and before that the land gifted for the foundation of New College Oxford. As Vicar I am automatically a member of the Governing body. The church places great importance on education in the Village and the link between the school and St. Mary’s is an important part of the life of our village.
Before moving to Adderbury I was Chair of Governors of a Primary School in Stratford upon Avon for some six years, and in my previous parish in Cardiff, was involved as Governor of both one of the Primary schools and Llanrumney High School.
My youngest son Gregory was a pupil at Christopher Rawlins when we moved to Adderbury, and is now in his final year of a Law Degree at the University of Liverpool.
My role is not simply a management one with the school, but is also to foster the life of the church and school communities in building together a healthy environment in which both can grow in learning and wholeness of life.
