Pen PortraitI am honoured to support St Peter at Gowts C of E Primary School as the ex-officio governor. I work as the RE Adviser for the Diocese of Lincoln and have previously supported the school in this role. I have taught Religious Studies and Philosophy at secondary level and have several research degrees in Theology and Religious Studies. I have worked as the Diocesan RE Adviser for the past four years, working with over 140 primary and secondary schools around greater Lincolnshire. I hope to bring my knowledge and experience of the education system and my expertise in Christian theology to support the school in its continued growth and development as a church school. As a parent of a pupil at the school, I have come to know the school even better and I look forward to doing what I can to help us achieve our vision of “unlocking lifelong learning through challenge, aspiration and inspiration”.

Pen PortraitMy name is Nick Hope and I am a parent governor at St Peter at Gowts CE Primary School. I have three children in the school, who are currently in years 3, 5 and 6. I do lots of work local community linked to sport and enjoy supporting PE and sport in school. In 2012, I was lucky enough to be chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Lincoln. This was recognition of my work within the local community.

Pen PortraitI am a retired mathematics lecturer, having spent 36 years in teaching. My teaching experience is mainly in secondary and FE but I have also taught in the primary sector. My speciality was in teaching mathematics in context to show how it applies to ‘real world’ situations and in other curriculum areas. During my career I held several management positions as well as being Union Branch Secretary in a large FE College. I have been a School Governor for 23 years. I am passionate about children’s education and believe that our school should provide the best education and opportunities it can for all our children while still retaining its community links and church values and ethos.
