John Evans-LEA Governor
I am a Chartered Engineer and a Chartered Arbitrator. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering, and a Master’s Degree in Law.
I taught engineering for seven years at Hatfield Polytechnic (now the University of Hertfordshire), where I developed close relationships with local primary schools and helped them promote an interest in science and engineering.
I am passionate about science, engineering and mathematics, and I believe similar passions can be developed in young children – starting in the early years of school.
I am a volunteer tutor to children in care, where I teach GCSE and A Level Maths and Science.
I have previously been a governor at a small village school outside Matlock. Having moved to Ashbourne three years ago, I offered my services to Hilltop School, and I look forward to contributing to its development.
I am keen that Hilltop School remains a community school, where the parents feel a strong association with the school. I am not in favour of federating with other schools.
