Matt Ellis

I started as an appointed governor at the school in September 2022, having been considering using my professional experience to add some value in a voluntary setting where I could. I have a son who now attends the school.


I’m presently a civil servant and have worked for 15 years as an auditor; I currently lead the audit service within government for parts of the justice system. My professional expertise is in governance, risk management and internal control and I hope to be able to contribute meaningfully using this experience during my time here.


I’ve lived in the Locks Heath area most of my life. After a ten-year period of working for a proportion of my time all over the world in the field of international development, I felt I had done my time flying, living in hotels and generally being overseas. Happily, the conclusion of this time coincided with me getting married and having children, which is now the focus of my time, and I am grateful to live in a wonderful place to do this.
