DR MILES MAXWELL

I have been a member of the Governing Body since 2002, and am currently the governor appointed by the Local Authority. I was Chair of the Governing Body from 2011 until 2017, and was reappointed to that role in 2019.  I also head the school’s Performance & Development Committee, and am a member of the Finance Committee. My other responsibilities are as the governor in charge of Safeguarding, and oversight of how the school assesses the performance and progress of the children.

A bit about me:  I have lived in Ickleford since 1996, and both my daughters (now in their twenties) attended Ickleford Primary School. My day job, until recently, was Head of Department at AstraZeneca in Cambridge.  In my spare time I’m a keen cyclist – look out for the blur on Arlesey Road ...
