Nick Whyte - Chair of AC

I am the chair of the academy council at the Avenue Primary, where both of my children have attended. As a parent and a council member, I support and work with the Head Teacher to foster the great relationship with the parents and wider local communities. 

In my professional life I am an IT Consultant, working with senior leaders to Digitally Transformation operations.  I want to start using my skills and experience to improve the communication and collaboration between the school and the parents, something which is a key motivation for me.

After moving around frequently as an Army child I have lived in the area for nearly 20 years. In my spare time, I enjoy family trips out to Longleat and dog walks with our Cocker Spaniel Max.
