We are very lucky to have an excellent team of governors at Queen's Drive Infant School.

Chair-Andrew Thorpe 

'I am delighted to be a Chair Governor for Queen’s Drive. I am enthusiastic about the challenge ahead and look forward to contributing to the development and success of the school and making a positive impact on the education of children in the local community.I have worked for Cafcass (Child and Family Court Advisory Support Service) as a Data Analyst for 10 years. Data is now a key aspect in all sectors, especially in education, and I believe that my knowledge and experience in this area will be of value to the Governing Body.I grew up on the South Coast near Portsmouth, and moved to Peterborough from London in 2011. I live locally to the school, and have two young daughters, who attend the school.'

I currently work full time for a pharmaceutical company based in Cambridge.I have lived and worked in Asia and Africa before moving to the UK giving me a spectrum of multi-cultural experiences. I hope this will be particularly useful for a school such as Queen’s Drive Infant School where students come from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. I am a native Bengali speaker and fluent in English.I would like to make a positive contribution to the education standards at the school and am particularly passionate about numeracy.'

I have lived locally for 24 years and both of my daughters came to Queen’s Drive which gave them an excellent start in their life of learning. I am a teacher of Modern Languages and a pastoral head of year in a local secondary school.'
