Return to Governors

Angela Thornton

Born in North London I moved to Hertford in 1998.    I gave up my career as a research scientist when my eldest son became very ill as a young child and have only worked part time since.   I have 3 boys, my eldest has just finished college, my middle son is at Richard Hale while my youngest is in his final year at Wheatcroft.  Both older boys were also pupils at Wheatcroft so I have been associated with the school a very long time.  Despite having significant Learning Difficulties my eldest was very happy at Wheatcroft, which is why I decided to get involved as a Governor.   I have been a Governor since 2003, and my special interest is Inclusion, with particular focus on Special Educational Needs and Gifted & Talented Children.   I also run a local support group for parents of children with Special Needs.
