Graham Prebble (Ernesford Grange Academy Governorm Chair of Audit Committee and Director)
I have been a school governor for 16 years. Initially 4 years at primary level and now secondary level for the past 12 years. I took over the chair of Ernesford Grange 4 months before it formally became an academy. This was a difficult time but was made easier by the open and engaging outlook of the Sidney Stringer Head along with the willingness of the Ernesford Grange staff. Over the past 3 years we have built a new school, demolished the old one and successfully become good neighbours with our co-sited broad spectrum school (Riverbank Academy).
I have worked for several companies over the past 30 years in the fields of computer design, avionics, communications and automotive engineering. This has taken me around the world working in many different countries. I took early retirement in 2017 giving me more time forthe activities within the school and my professional institution helping young engineers develop in their early careers. In my free time I love rugby and play in a pipe band performing around the world.
