Hello, my name is Craig Corrin. I was privileged to be elected as a parent governor at St. Stephens in November 2019.
The most important part of my life is being a Dad. I live in Preston with my girlfriend Lara and our two sons. Our eldest started at St Stephens in 2019. Not knowing what to expect from this new adventure, I was delighted by the warmth of the welcome and support we received from everyone at St. Stephens.
Preston has always been my home. I was born in the city and have always lived in and around the centre. There’s no where else in the world I would rather be on a summer's day than relaxing with my family in Avenham Park.
I have always harboured a love of learning. I was fortunate to be the first in my family to have the opportunity to attend university. A love of problem-solving and detective stories led me to complete a Law degree at New College, Oxford.
I have enjoyed a career in retail since 2010. For the past 5 years I have carried out Store Manager roles across Lancashire, Manchester and Cumbria. I love that every day is different and find looking after the welfare of my two hundred colleague store team a hugely rewarding role.
I applied for the role of parent governor as I believe that many of the skills I use daily in my work-life are similar to those that make a successful governor. Working with my fellow governors at St Stephens I am excited to be able to add value and drive improvement to the benefit of all the children of the school.
