Philip Crisford, Co-Opted Governor
A Governor for AHPS from July 2010, I’m currently vice chair of the school’s Resource Committee. As the school’s health & safety governor roles include health and safety walk rounds, observing fire evacuation drills, and an annual audit of the school’s accident book. Other roles have included helping with staff recruitment interviews, as well as the normal governor teaching and learning visits.
I am now retired, but from 2003 to 2018 I was a self-employed consultant providing external quality assurance services to awarding bodies delivering vocational qualifications. Prior to that I served for 27 years with Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service.
I live close to the school and have four grown up children and eight grandchildren. I enjoy my garden and my little dog. I’m a keen motor racing fan and sponsor and support an old army chum who races a classic 1967 Ford Escort Mexico Cosworth. I’m also the pound owner of a Plus 4 Morgan, a member of the Morgan Sports Car Club, and a member of the National Trust.
Other community involvement includes distributing the parish Magazine in Ashford Hill and being a trustee of Kingsclere Charities.
