Dave Russell
                              Co-opted Governor

I am a Co-opted Governor and currently the chair of Governors. My original connection with SIS was when my two daughters attended the school back in the mid-1980s and I have happy memories of this time. I'm now the proud grandfather of three small children who are enrolled at infant/ primary schools in Brighton and Southampton.

I was a lecturer at the University of Portsmouth for over 40 years. I filled a number of senior leadership roles at the University, and for 8 years, prior to my retirement in September 2015, I was Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and a member of the University Executive Board.

I was a governor and trustee at King Richard Secondary School, Paulsgrove for 9 years and from summer 2015-18, I filled the role of Chair of Governors at KRS
