Nicki Hunt – Governor Background Statement
I recently joined the team as a parent governor in January 2020, and immediately saw the school getting to grips with an OFSTED inspection and a pandemic... fast forward, and I still see a real and valuable sense of community and inclusion prevailing at Milford Primary school. It was this welcome that initially attracted us as a family when our previous school at Shipley closed in 2019, and that also encouraged me to join the governing body. Born in Liverpool and growing up in Cornwall, I trained as an opera singer at Chetham’s School of Music, the RAM, and the RNCM before touring Europe with Diva Opera. I have loved performing extensively, and these rich experiences are a joy to share. I currently work as a singing teacher at St Anselm’s in Bakewell and choral conductor in Nottingham, and have had the privilege of delivering workshops and singing sessions to many different groups of many differing peoples. I feel very lucky. The best job ever, and I’m sure my husband would agree, is of course, being involved daily with our two awesome, quirky, beautiful kids.
