Mike Derbidge - Foundation Parent Governor

Hello, my name is Mike Derbidge.

For a number of years, I have been a Foundation Governor at St Benedict's School, also, the Health and Safety Governor.

I am a retired builder and I live in Glastonbury with my wife and all of my family.  We have strong links with St Benedict's of which my youngest still attends the school.

I have a deep love of sport and music, and as a volunteer, I help with the rugby and athletic clubs, Bike Ability and also play my guitar in Collective Worship.

For over 25 years, I was a national RFU referee travelling all over the world and also chairman and coach of Wells Harriers Athletics Club.

I work with an extremely dedicated team of Governors, to ensure that the children receive a first class education and that the headteacher and his staff are well-supported.

In my spare time (haha) I am also the verger at St John's Church.
