Mr Darren Nice
I have two daughters that have both completed their primary education at Hook with Warsash and my wife is Assistant Head teacher at the Academy. I enjoyed two years as the Treasurer on the PTFA raising funds for activities and equipment for the pupils. I am currently employed as Head of Information Systems for a defence company. Previous to 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 (Distinction) at the University of Southampton in 2010 writing a dissertation on Service Quality. I have an interest and background in E-Learning.
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 until 31 March 2024.
I am the Internal Audit Officer for the Academy Trust and am a member of both the Resources Committee and of the Governance & Audit Committee. I am also the Governor with responsibility for Assessment and was appointed by the Members as a Member of the Trust.
Pecuniary and other interests: My wife is a member of staff of the Academy.
