Past Trustees

Sam Newson

Role: Co-opted Trustee
Committee: Money Group
Date of appointment: 8th January 2018

I moved to the Island from Cornwall 8 years ago when I met my wife who has lived on the island her whole life and attended the original school Somerton middle before it became Lanesend. I love the island for the beautiful country side, friendly people and a great place to raise a family.

I have 3 children aged 6, 5 and 2 with the older 2 at Lanesend in years 2 and R.  I feel being a governor I can support their education further at the school and help the school grow and continue to succeed in all they do. 

I work as an ICT Facilitator and site manager in another school on the island so bring great experience and knowledge in many things.  I have a passion for computing and love teaching programming and how computers work to children.
