Parent Governor - Sean McCarthy


Sean McCarthy

I have lived in Watlington since 2004. My two children attended the local pre-school, Watlington Primary school.  One attended Icknield Community College, and one is currently there.  

I have been actively involved since 2012 in the fundraising efforts of the Friends of Icknield. Having witnessed the excellent education my children are receiving at the ICC, I am delighted to have the opportunity, as a parent governor, to support the school in its continued development. 

I hold a degree and doctorate in Life Sciences, and have worked for more than 24 years as a Clinical Research Scientist involved in the successful development of new drugs for the treatment of cancers and rare metabolic disorders.  My experience ranges from biotechnology start-ups to major pharmaceutical companies, and for the last 4 years I have run my own consultancy business.




The headteacher, senior leaders and local governing board know the school’s strengths and areas for development very well (Ofsted 2019)
