Andrew Nicholson - Chair of Governors

 Hi, I’m Andrew Nicholson and I’m one of the foundation governors at Ladock School. I work as the Cornwall Methodist District Youth Enabler which involves helping to support youth projects across Cornwall and Scilly, and helping to give young people more opportunities for participation within the church and their communities. I’m passionate about worship that is accessible and inclusive, and enjoy leading services and events that involve everyone participating. – such as creating labyrinths on the beach for people to explore the journey of their life, Prayer drumming, informal Café style Church, lively family services, through to meditative Taize style services. I have a lot of different interests including sport, in which I play cricket and table tennis and am a member of the Elite Racing Club; wildlife (especially birding), astronomy (solar eclipse chasing!), and music (drumming, song writing, worship leading and pre-school music groups). I was also runner up for the UK in the last Red Bull World Paper plane championship! I’m married to Helen, and we have two sons at the school, Isaac and Joseph. Helen and I regularly help lead Friday assemblies as part of the “Open The Book” team which acts out various Bible stories in creative ways.

Mary Stevenson – Staff Governor

Although born in Devon, my father is a Cornishman so moving to Cornwall in 1990 was coming back to my roots!  I have taught in several primary schools in the County of all shapes and sizes – from Newquay Junior which at the time had over 400 pupils, to Ladock which is on a somewhat smaller scale!  Before studying for my B.Ed Hons degree at Rolle College, I worked as a secretary in the North Devon District Hospital and learnt the immensely useful skill of ‘typing fast’ – which never ceases to fascinate the pupils I teach!  It has been a real pleasure to be part of the Ladock team since September 2014 working with great staff, children and parents.
