Stephen was originally a governor at the infant school before it merged with the juniors and is now a co-opted governor and vice chair. Stephen was originally asked to be a governor at the time schools began managing their own budgets, as he was an accountant and the school believed he could help them with doing so. He is on the governing body now because he is interested in education in this country and particularly keen to help Beamont to progress in any way that he can.
