He has had 15 years’ experience of being a Company Director and running a business. Steve’s core skills are in people management; thinking creatively and getting ideas across in a captivating way; problem solving; writing and all aspects of the media. Steve has always been an advocate of sport and being active.

Steve is passionate about doing his best to help The Kingston Academy progress and succeed, as a member of the Curriculum Performance and Standards committee and being the critical friend a parent trustee needs to be.
