Co-Opted - Peter Hinde


Peter Hinde

I have lived locally, settling in Chalgrove, since 2007 after moving around the country, first with studies and then later with work. I have a Ph.D in chemistry and work in R&D for a large UK speciality chemical company. I have been a community governor since 2009, and sit on the curriculum and staff dismissal committees. I have additional responsibility to liaise with the science department and am also the nominated equal opportunities governor. As a school child in the midlands I attended my local comprehensive school where I thrived despite the generally low expectations for the cohort. I believe that every child deserves the best education and preparation for life in the wider world. For this reason I was drawn to, and am proud to support, Icknield Community College as it continues to provide an excellent start for the young generation.
