Stephen Hunt 

Chair of Local Committee    


"I have been involved in governance at Perry Hall since 2012, having been elected as a parent governor when my eldest daughter was in reception.  Both of my children are now at the school in KS2.


I have served as Chair of the Resources Committee, Vice Chair of the Governing Body, and I was elected Chair in September 2017.


I have been recently appointed to NEST's Finance & Resources and Audit & Risk Committee which looks at issues across the MAT to help shape the direction of the wider group.


I work as a CFO for a technology company helping to raise finance and support its growth which requires a long term strategic focus alongside maintaining a close eye on the numbers which both translate readily to a governance role.


Being on the Local Committee can be challenging but it is also incredibly rewarding work with an excellent leadership team dedicated to delivering outstanding opportunities for all of our pupils and staff"

Stuart Crane

Vice Chair/Parent Member of Local Committee

"I have been a parent member of the Local Committee at Perry Hall since May 2014 and also chaired the Learning and Community committee for some time.  I have a daughter who has now left the school and another in year 4.


I work as Head of Production for a hire company that supplies technical equipment to the live events and broadcast sectors.


Managing a team of both office and site based staff, my job entails a great deal of day to day planning and logistics plus strategising for future growth and development.


I am delighted to serve on the Local Committee and play my part in ensuring Perry Hall stays and "Outstanding" school that offers the pupils every opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, happy environment"

Carol Rugg

Community Member of Local Committee


"I have recently embarked upon my journey as a Local Committee member at Perry Hall, having no previous experience of the English education system, so am very much in learning mode.


In my professional life I lead a team that supports the financial markets and treasury businesses of a major UK bank - a business I have been involved with for 39 years through its various incarnations.  It is a very dynamic, fast paced environment facing into the political, economic, social and technology challenges that all enterprises, private and public face. My role is multi-faceted from operational to strategy.


Perry Hall as an educational establishment is new to me, however I have been impressed by the commitment and passion of everyone I have met who is involved with the school and governance framework.  I look forward to contributing to its continued development"
