Mr Rob Cooke


Vice Chair and Local Authority Governor

I first became a governor in 2000 after the company I was working for in Clapham encouraged its staff to be involved in the local community. I met the head teacher of Clapham Manor Primary School and after a brief walk around was encouraged to join the governing board. I did this for several years untill I moved to Kent. After a few years break I volunteered at East Stour and 5 months later I became chair where I have been ever since. 

My background is in IT, both technical and sales, the majority of my career working for Experian and one of its subsidiaries, although for the last few years I have been involved in property management and dealing in silver and gold bullion..

I enjoy my garden which keeps me busy and some flying when I get the chance and I have an interest in classic cars.
