My name is David. I grew up in the south of England and went to a school very much like South Stanley Junior, before coming to the north for university and staying here after meeting my wife. We married in 1981 and we have one son now happily flown the coop.
We live a short drive from the school. I am Emeritus Professor of Statistics at Durham University. My work has mainly been in university research and teaching, and particularly in applied industrial statistics and data analysis, including working with local companies.
I am a school Governor because I want to help develop the talent in our children and to help provide them opportunities to flourish.
