Mr Darren Nice

I have two daughters that have both completed their primary education at Hook with Warsash. I enjoyed two years as the Treasurer on the PTFA raising funds for activities and equipment for the pupils. I am currently leading a software business working for a defence company. Before this role I worked for VT Flagship as Director of Operations across the Royal Navy Training Establishments responsible for 900 civilian staff delivering training to Officers and Ratings. I am qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant and completed an MBA at the University of Southampton in 2010, and an MSc at Cranfield University in 2023.

I was originally elected as a Parent Governor by the parents of pupils of the Academy. However, when my term ended in April 2016 I became an Appointed Governor appointed by the members of the Academy Trust with my original term ending on 31 March 2020.I am delighted that I have been re-appointed and now coming towards the end of my third term at 31 March 2024.
