Dr Elizabeth Hidson is a foundation governor, so she has a particular interest in the Catholic life of the school. She is also a reader at St. Michael’s Church and helps with the First Holy Communion classes.
Elizabeth joined the governing body in December 2017, when her youngest son was still at St. Michael’s. He has now moved on to St. Leonard’s, but Elizabeth is still a governor because she thinks that St. Michael’s is a fantastic school and she wants to continue to support the school.
Elizabeth has always worked in education, previously as a secondary-school teacher and school leader in London, and now as a Senior Lecturer in Education at The University of Sunderland. Life is very busy, but Elizabeth’s favourite quiet times are sitting on the sofa with a coffee and a book, and with her dogs Lucy and Pepper snoozing next to her.
