Hi, my name is Simon Hones, and I’m the Priest-in-Charge of St John’s Church. Because our school is a Church School, I became one of the Foundation Governors when I moved to Marchwood in November 2011. I am on the Teaching and Learning Committee of the Governors. My particular areas of focus are the spiritual welfare and development of our children and the overall character, balance and values of the school. I lead worship with some or all of the children each week, which gives me a privileged relationship with them that I enjoy very much. I have been a governor at various church schools since 1990. For relaxation I grow rare and exotic plants.
