Some words from our Governors on why they are doing their roles:

 

  Kathy Inskip  

 

I am Kathy Inskip and I feel it is a privilege to be the Chair of Governors at Ash Field. I am delighted to have the opportunity to be part of the school with such amazing pupils, parents, staff and governors – thank you to everyone.


My initial link with Ash Field was working for Connexions and supporting pupils and parents with the transition from school to young adulthood (e.g. FE college). Having left this role, I wished to maintain contact with the school and later became a Community Governor in 2007.

 
I have worked in social care and independent organisations across a number of different counties for over 25 years, with adults with disabilities and children with disabilities and their families.  I have always lived in Leicestershire. 


I hope that I contribute some of my skills and experience to being a Governor at Ash Field, and know that together we all strive for continued development and improvement to ensure that pupils are supported to achieve the very best outcomes. 

 

 

  Allan Dunsmore  

 

I am Allan Dunsmore and I am now retired after over 40 years working in Leicester city schools as a Science teacher. I have considerably experience at senior management level and for the last six years of my teaching career I was a head teacher. Since my retirement in 2011 as a head I have been working part time at New College as a Community Partnership manager working with DMU and local volunteers organising volunteer placements at the school. I have also worked at Ash Field for a number of years teaching GCSE Science to local Teaching assistants one evening a week. I also had the pleasure of teaching science to a year 11 pupil at Ash Field two years ago.


My hope is that I can bring my considerable experience to support the work of the Governors, senior team and teachers at this amazing school.

 

  Rupert Mingay  

 

I am Rupert Mingay. I live in a village near Market Harborough which is about half an hour away from Ash Field. Most recently I have been working at a bank with business in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. My office is in London and I have to get up pretty early on a Monday morning to get there (5 o’clock!). I also get to travel abroad quite a lot. The hottest place I have been to is Abu Dhabi. The most unusual building I have been to is the Esplanade in Singapore which is shaped like a giant pineapple. When I am not travelling I like cooking, taking our dogs for walks and going to Welford Road to watch the Tigers.

 

I am a Governor at Ash Field Academy because I think it is a brilliant place and I want to be part of it. I hope I can help with some ideas from time to time and I know I can learn a lot. My daughter Philippa was a student here and left a couple of years ago. She loved her time here and likes to come back to visit as well.
