Mr Phil Smith (Parent)

After graduating from Imperial College London and starting out life as a Scientist, I switched to a career in finance and qualified as a chartered accountant nearly 15 years ago. Following several years working for a Big Four accountancy firm I moved into industry and have been a Finance Director for the past 7 years, latterly for a civil engineering business working on large scale infrastructure projects.

I became a Parent Governor in Autumn 2019. I have a son who started in Reception at Darras Hall Primary School in September 2018 and a 2-year old daughter who is raring to go! I  have lived in Ponteland for 8 years with my wife and 2 children. As a family we enjoy sailing in our spare time and are active members of our sailing club where I have competed for over 30 years.
