Liam McGivern - Acting Chair

 I am an accountant by profession (member of Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) with wide experience in various roles in finance, including budgeting, performance reporting, internal audit, risk management and governance. 

After taking early retirement, I took the opportunity to use my skills to add value, by becoming a school governor, supporting school leaders in providing the best possible educational environment for the children. I joined the Hillcroft SSB at the end of November 2019 where I am now chair of the SSB. In addition to being a governor at six schools in total, a secondary school, special school and four primary schools I am also a member of the GLF Finance committee.  

I regularly undertake training to keep up with changes and to broaden my knowledge.

All six are in the primary sector - The Earlswood Federation, Salfords School, Warlingham Village Primary School, Marden Lodge, and Hillcroft as well as Whyteleafe.
