Catriona McKinnon - Parent Governor


I am delighted to be serving as a Governor at Jewell Academy. I am keen to use my four years' experience as a Vice Chair of Governors at a school elsewhere in Bournemouth to support Mrs Addis and her team as they grow Jewell into an even more inspirational school, fit to challenge, excite, and engage its students. My professional background is in Higher Education. I have worked in universities for twenty years, and I am presently a Professor of Political Theory at the University of Reading, where I lead a research centre focused on climate change and justice. I have published ten books, including a best selling textbook, and I am in the process of writing two more. I have two children at Jewell Academy.
