Mr Peter Dilworth

Skills I contribute to the Governing Body

I have considered and completed a skills audit in March 2018. I am confident that I can meet all the core skills and am lucky to have experience of many of the specialist skills required, and in time hope to be able to serve the school with these.

I have been invited to join the governing body and am happy to give my best. I have been very positively impressed with the school since coming in as a volunteer in October 2016, and would like to help build on achievements already in place.
