Nick St John

Mr Nick St John

I am a retired member of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants (FCCA) and a recently retired magistrate (JP). I held many senior positions in finance during my career, leaving British Gas in 1996 as Group Chief Financial Accountant. I was not ready to retire and entered the field of education. I lectured in Further Education and on professional courses, completing this part of my career at Portsmouth University in 2010.


I am a regular attendee at St Mary’s and a former Church Warden. I currently co-ordinate the Home Groups and the Prayer Ministry Team, as well as assisting at Messy Church.


I assist a number of local groups, including Fareham Community Hospital, Warsash Horticultural Society and Titchfield Uniform Sales (Brownies and Rainbow), with the audit and verification of their accounts. As a Committee member of Warsash Tennis Club for many years, I assisted with the development of the Courts and Clubhouse.

Both my daughters attended Hook-with-Warsash and I have three grandchildren, one at primary school and the other two at secondary school.


My leisure interests include the arts and travel as well as all sports.


I feel that my skills and experience in finance and human resources will enable me to make a positive contribution to the future of the Academy.


I am a Foundation Governor appointed by the Foundation Members and my term ends on 6 September 2021.


I am a member of the  Pupil Discipline, Curriculum & Early Years Committee, of the Forging Links Committee and of the Pay & Appraisal Committee. I have competed certificated Safer Recruitment Training.


Pecuniary and other interests: none.

First appointed as a Governor September 2017
