Well done Southgate for your team spirit and tenacity at the netball tournament last week. Those smiles say it all (this was before it got dark and poured with rain!)

Liam McGivern - Chair of the School Standards Board

I am an accountant by profession (member of Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) with wide experience in various roles in finance, including budgeting, performance reporting, internal audit, risk management and governance.

After taking early retirement from full time work, I see this opportunity to use my skills to add value to the governing body and support the school leaders in providing the best possible educational environment for the children.

I live locally and have a daughter who teaches at a primary school in inner London.  At school, my strongest subject was maths which fed my enquiring mind.

I have always liked rugby union since my school time.  I coached youngsters when my daughter was playing (7-11-year olds).  I will often go to watch Harlequins.


Setul Mehta - Member of the School Standards Board

With over 18 years of financial services experience, my expertise focuses on Strategy, Distribution, Operations, Governance and Development.

I am well versed in recruiting, inducting, coaching, managing and delivering results through direct reports and deep spans.

Areas of segment knowledge span across Protection, Mortgages, Wealth Management, GI, FinTech, Asset Management and the value chain within.

I have contributed in various Financial Services industry forums and publications.

Alongside financial services, I support the education sector as a Board Trustee within The Pegasus Partnership Trust and Interim School Standards Board Member at GLF Schools. This has led to participating as a speaker at various NGA events.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my young family, a keen sports fan and supporting The Openwork Foundation
