Lutterworth College

Lutterworth College Governing Body


Governors are frequent visitors to the school and are keen to find out as much as possible about day-to-day issues.

For example, an inspector observed a planned lunchtime meeting where governors gathered a great deal of evidence from student representatives on their views, using this information to plan further discussions on future strategies.

  David Hiorns

I am extremely proud to be a Governor, as a former pupil of Lutterworth College, then known as the Grammar School, with my eldest son currently studying here, who is now the third generation, following in mine and my father’s footsteps. 

I have worked in industry since leaving school, qualifying as a management accountant in my early 20s, and enjoying a career as a Senior Commercial Finance professional, working in the UK, Europe and the US for a number of Blue Chip organisations, such as Gap Inc., Dunelm, Goldsmiths, M&S and Barclaycard. I now own a consultancy business, providing commercial support to transform other companies.

I believe in ensuring the future strategic direction of the school delivers an empowering environment for the pupils, whilst also establishing strong links with the local community.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my 2 sons, and also run the Lutterworth Town Juniors under 11 team, which are now based at the college. My hobbies include music, Leicester City (season ticket holder), cycling, cricket and cooking. 


Ashley Pepper, Staff Governor

Lutterworth College has been an important place for me in my teaching career.  I completed by BSc Psychology (Hons) at University of Leicester in 2006 and my PGCE(m) at the University of Leicester in 2007  where I had my second phase placement here. It must have made a considerable impact as despite already having a job elsewhere for my NQT year I returned in 2009 to take on Head of Psychology and Sociology. During my time here I have been Head of Columbus house, Head of Social Science and now Able, Gifted and Talented coordinator for the College. I have always been proud to work here, proud of what we do, our students and the incredible staff. I look forward to continuing to make an impact as staff governor. Other interests include live action and table top roleplay as well as the recently acquired skill of knitting.

Nick Summers, Head of Lutterworth College

Having spent the first 16 years of my working life in industry, I have worked in education since 1999. I qualified as a Business & Economics teacher and worked at Ousedale School in Milton Keynes for 13 years. During that time I occupied a variety of roles including Head of Department, Head of Year & Head of Sixth Form. My passion at Ousedale School was for leading the Duke of Edinburgh Award at every level to become a Gold Award trainer & assessor. I also qualified as a Mountain Leader and led overseas expeditions to Ecuador, Peru, Morocco & Kenya. The highlight of this period was taking 26 young people to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Watching young people from quite normal backgrounds achieve the extraordinary was quite simply, amazing. In 2012, I became Assistant Principal at The Hazeley Academy in Milton Keynes and in 2015, Deputy Headteacher at The Lutterworth College. My initial focus at the college was on the Sixth Form but my role quickly moved to encompass whole school responsibilities. I have thoroughly enjoyed implementing the changes necessary to bring about the historically best results for the college in 2017 at both GCSE and A level. Now in my role as Headteacher I want to ensure that students at Lutterworth College are truly able to learn, flourish and succeed. Any spare time I have is spent with my three young children; Ruby, Noah & Ted.




Ana Aparicio

I have worked in education for over 25 years first as a secondary school teacher and then I retrained as an educational psychologist. As a teacher I worked in both mainstream and special schools and taught Maths and PSE/Lifeskills as well as taking on roles such as Head of KS4, Head of KS3 Lifeskills. As an Educational Psychologist I have particular experience with children who have special educational needs and I have also had for a number of years a specialist role in respect to children who are Looked After.

Over the years I have been a volunteer for a range of organisations supporting children who are Looked After, vulnerable adults and adults with visual impairments.

In my spare time I enjoy watching Leicester Tigers and I have recently taken up walking basketball. Since moving to Lutterworth I now also enjoy watching Lutterworth rugby team and Lutterworth cricket team matches whenever I get the chance.

Previous to this I was Chair of Governors at Gilmorton Chandler Primary school for four years and served another five years there before that. I am a trained Primary School teacher and have worked in London, Italy, Nottingham and Leicestershire. I took time out to have my children who are both in secondary education now, one of whom attends the College. I currently work part time at Lifeplan Products, Lutterworth, in the finance department.

Adam Durnin

I am a former pupil of Lutterworth College back when it was known as the Grammar School and have a son who is currently studying here.  During my time at the school I studied Music at both GCSE and A-Level and was involved in the Musical Theatre productions put on by the school.  This sparked my interest in theatre and I now work as a Theatre Manager.  Previously I have worked both in industry and in the charity & volunteer sector, working as the Volunteer Director during the 2009 Special Olympics in Leicester.  I have also spent a number of years working with young people in projects all over the East midlands.  I have a strong interest in the Arts in general and recognise the importance they play in a rounded education.  I have served as a Governor before at my son’s primary school.  My hobbies are music and mountain climbing/biking with my son.
