Standing down as a Governor of the Whitgift Foundation
19/05/2015 10:14:00

Yesterday, I tendered my resignation as a Governor of the Whitgift Foundation and Chairman of the Governors of Trinity School with effect from the end of this school term.

I've enjoyed my time as a Governor immensely and am particularly proud to have played a very small part in the progress Trinity has made under its outstanding Headmaster Mark Bishop. It's been great to give something back to a school to which I owe so much.

But having been re-elected on 7th May and promoted in last week's reshuffle, I need to reduce some of my other commitments. I'm obviously honoured to have been given a more senior role in the Government, but providing a first-class service to my constituents is my top priority and I need to make sure I have the time to do that.

I wish both the school and the Foundation all the best for the future and I'll still be working closely with the latter as the Foundation has a key role to play in making sure the redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre gets underway as soon as possible.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
