Chair of Governors
After studying at Newcastle University, Ben moved to London to work in education at The Key spending five years supporting school leaders and governors across the country. After working with Schools North East at the start of 2019 on a project to support MATs across the region, Ben made the move to back to the North East in the summer and join the SNE team.
Ben was previously a governor at a special school in London for 4 years, as chair of a leadership and management committee. During his time at the school he was involved in the recruitment of a new Head Teacher, a school relocation and an Ofsted inspection (Good!).
Ben is passionate about supporting the Trust’s vision to transform the lives of children and communities in the Laidlaw Schools Trust, through inspirational education.
