Darren Townsend

I have just recently been appointed as a Governor.I have lived in Bicester for 30 years. My son, Harry, is currently in Year 5 at Southwold. My wife and I were very impressed with the school when we came for a visit before Harry started, all those years ago, and we’ve felt the same ever since.

I’ve been a member of Friends of Southwold School PTA (FoSS) for 4 years, currently serving as vice-chair. I have also recently started helping out with computing in school, and I currently run 3 computing-based after-school clubs. I’ve found that the more time I spend at the school, the more I appreciate how much hard work goes into the children’s education. I decided to join the Board of Governors so that I could help support, and challenge, the school in their commitment to achieve even higher standards.

I work as a Delivery Driver for Warburton’s, based in Bicester. It’s an early start, but allows for a good work-life balance, as well as allowing me time to spend at school, introducing the students to the world of Computing.
