Polly Stanton used to be the Administrator and Office Manager of the Faraday Institute. She read Maths and Physics, receiving a BEd from Sheffield University and went on to teach Mathematics. She took a long career break from formal Maths teaching to bring up a family but maintained an interest and involvement in education as a parent, school governor and private tutor. She serves on the Diocesan Board of Education and Cambridgeshire’s Local Authority Admissions Forum and is a member of the governing bodies of two schools. In 2005 she completed a Masters degree at the Faculty of Education in Cambridge. Her thesis explored the role of school governors, with particular reference to the way they function relationally within the school structure.
