Chair of Governors - Mark Milton 

Co-Opted Governor appointed by the Governing Body. Chair of Resources Committee. Term of office 20/5/19

I live in Luckington and am married with two children. Working in public service and travelling away most days helps me appreciate what the village has to offer, particularly the school. I began my association with it when my youngest daughter became a pupil. Her time here demonstrated to me its many strengths and continuing to be part of the school as a governor is very rewarding.

I became a Governor as I was keen to help and have involvement in the local school that our child attends. My profession is as a Project Manager but, when I’m not in the office, we are a family that enjoys being outdoors. The  more I’ve become involved, the more I realise what a fantastic school this is and how important it is to the village.

In 1997 we moved to Luckington and soon after I became County Councillor for the Malmesbury Area. I was invited to join as  Local Authority Governor and have been happy to support the school ever since.
We are very lucky in the village to have a superb school which caters carefully and individually for every child.  But it’s not only important for the children to have such  good education, it’s important for the village to have a vibrant school at its heart.  I’ve been proud to be a governor and to make a contribution to the well-being of our community.

My family and I moved to Luckington several years ago from Bristol and quickly realised what a special place, both the village and its school were. We value the fact that our four children are able to go to our local school. I became a governor in order to try to support something which is such an important  local amenity.
