Return to Governors

John Drewery


My three children all attended Wheatcroft School between 21- and 8 years ago and my wife has worked in the school, firstly, on a voluntary basis when our youngest child started in the nursery and now as a Teaching Assistant, for 15 years. I am an Architect and have specialised in School design for the last 35 years.

I was invited to be a Governor by Mr Skinner, at the time the school was being considered for expansion and also because I had, for a number of years, been helping on school trips to Barton Broad. I am also a Trustee of a Hertfordshire based charity, supporting hearing impaired children and their families. Other interests; almost anything but principally natural history and juggling.
