Martin Ekers

Chair of Governors

Martin was recruited to the governing body in 2013 and was voted chair in 2014. Although his entire career has been in the “city”, he has very strong educational links with all three of his brothers having embraced teaching at some point in their lives, as well as having two of his five children currently employed as teachers. His employers are very supportive of staff members helping local communities, which makes his visits to the school that much easier to manage. He is a keen sportsman, as an active rugby referee, and playing and coaching cricket, and although competent at both skills, he has not quite been able to emulate his late father, who represented Great Britain in tennis at many age groups, his last appearance for the over 75’s!
