Hello, I'm Andrew Sharples and I became a parent governor at Water Street in February 2017. I have 2 children currently in Year 6 and Year 3 at the school & have previously been Chair of Governors at a primary school in Keighley. The Education environment is somewhat different to when I ended that role some 10 years ago however, I believe that Water Street is ideally placed to make the best of the challenges that face us and ensure all children at the school achieve their potential. I want to do my bit to make sure the school can do that. I work in a secondary school in Keighley as a School Games Organiser, arranging inter school sporting competitions between up to 42 schools in my patch, and also manage the facilities in the evenings, weekends and school holidays as a Community Recreation Centre.
