Vivienne Dews, Chair of Governors

Vivienne Dews head shot Vivienne spent her career in the Civil Service, at first in the Home Office but later providing ICT to the police, in the Health and Safety Executive, and finally in the Office of Fair Trading where she was Chief Executive at its closure. A qualified accountant, she specialised in finance and other corporate functions, and she led a wide range of operational services. Since retirement she has been deeply involved in governing two schools, one needing to be turned round after being put into special measures.

She also sits on the Board and/or audit committee of 3 other national charities. She first took an interest in neurosciences when reading medicine at Cambridge. And she has experienced being the parent of very sick children having lost her first two daughters in early childhood. This led her to join the Governing Body of a special school for children with physical and often serious or profound learning difficulties.

Vivienne was appointed as a Trustee of Young Epilepsy in February 2015 and as Chair of the Young Epilepsy Education Governing Body in February 2016.

Feedback from parents

Quote Icon I feel my daughter is achieving as much as she can. She is not allowed to get away with things due to her health issues. The extra curricular activities are brilliant. I could not possibly do all those things with her myself. The school and Young Epilepsy enable her to have the childhood she deserves but would not be able to get anywhere else.
