Graham Prebble (Ernesford Grange Academy Governorm Chair of Audit Committee and Director)
I have been a school governor for 13 years. Initially 4 years at primary level and now secondary level for the past 9 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 for the past 6 years automotive engineering. This has taken me around the world working in many different countries. I am currently on a sabbatical.
I am active within 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.
