Pen Portraits

Mark Wilson, Co-opted Governor

I have worked in Education and ICT for over 20 years now, but I am still as passionate about the best use of ICT in education as I was when I started.  I have worked in both the public and private sectors advising schools on the best use of their technology, in order to fulfil its full potential for teaching and learning.  I hope that I am able to use my expertise in this sector to inform decisions, as part of the governing body of Buckingham Park, as there is always progress to be made in this exciting and constantly changing environment.

I have two children, one who has just started in Reception at Buckingham Park.  I have a love of music and in my spare time I DJ in local venues and host a monthly radio show, which keeps me busy and keeps my home full of vinyl!

Edward Preece, Parent Governor

I joined the board as a Parent Governor earlier this year (2016) and as such, I am still in the learning phase of my tenure with the school.

Having spent a large part of my career within the automotive and engineering fields and more recently with my current employment, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and working experience in the areas of health and safety, team management and business methodologies.

I hope to bring a positive influence to the Governor group, assisting and encouraging change for the betterment of the school and the learning environment for our children. I have been assigned the role of monitoring and reporting on Health and Safety as well as maintaining an overview of premises along with a fellow Governor.

I am a father of three, all of which are, or have been taught at the school and I have been impressed with the standards of teaching and the support given to pupils to encourage educational progress no matter what their background or need. Having seen first-hand the work produced by all year groups, I know we have a very good school that we should be proud of and should support in whichever way we can.

In my spare time I enjoy mountain biking and training for and running marathons, carrying out my duties as a Retained Firefighter at Shoreham and not forgetting my role as a Parent Governor at Buckingham.
