School Governor: Mrs Anne Rogerson

This Yorkshire “lass” has a life long passion for education, having wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. Given the help and encouragement of my parents and quality schooling, I realised my dream. I have worked in a range of secondary schools and the final post I had was as Headteacher of a comprehensive school in Warwickshire. I am delighted to have the opportunity
of maintaining my contact with schools through being invited to join the Governing Body of Harpur Hill Primary School, where I look forward to helping fellow governors, staff and parents/carers bring opportunities to the children at the school.


After retiring, my husband Simon and I moved to Buxton in 2011 as we wanted to live in this area, having spent many happy hours holidaying and walking in the Peak District. The warmth of the welcome we have received, and the opportunities for being involved in the local community prove it was definitely the right decision. The additional bonus is that we are only a half hour drive from our daughter, her husband and our three gorgeous grandchildren, aged 5,6 and 7 years old.


We continue with our love of walking, involvement in the theatre and the very active Buxton and District U3A, where I lead the Oral history Group. So beware, if you have a story to tell – and we all have - I may well be coming your way, recorder in hand!


I am really excited about joining Harpur Hill Primary School as a governor and as such hope to support the children as they learn for life.
