Barnby Road Academy

‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Phillip Shephard

Phillip Shephard - Staff Governor


I am the Site Manager at Barnby Road but for many years I was leader of Children's play and Youth services for Kensington and Chelsea in London. Taking a lifestyle change, I moved to Newark many years ago and have never looked back. I am a Trustee for Newark and Sherwood Play Support and also for Radio Newark and our own Friends group. I am always 'hands on' and organise play-schemes and play projects across Newark as well as in our own community. I love sport and played Rugby and Cricket for Notts in my younger years. I think I bring this love of sport to the children at school and regularly coach and support them to excel at a wide range of sporting opportunities.
