Anne Fisher – Trustee
I worked for Hampshire County Council as a Primary teacher, Deputy Headteacher and Headteacher for 17 years prior to moving to Suffolk in August 2000. Following my relocation, I initially worked for Cambridgeshire Local Authority (LA) as an Interim Headteacher of a primary school and I was then appointed to Essex Advisory and Inspection Service as a senior adviser. In this role I supported and co-ordinate the work of a team of advisers and consultants in the West area of Essex and had overall responsibility for 120 primary schools.
I started my own education consultancy business in April 2012 and am currently working as an independent education adviser supporting a diverse range of primary schools and academy trusts in East Anglia. I also trained as an Ofsted inspector, and have taken part in a number of primary school inspections.
Why did you become a St Nicholas Hospice Care Trustee?
I became a trustee at St Nicholas Hospice Care in 2020 as I wanted to use my skills and experience and get involved in such a worthwhile charity. The Hospice has an amazing reputation in the local community and I feel privileged to be associated with it and to help in whichever way I can. In addition to my role as a trustee, I also volunteer as a relief receptionist in the Hospice.
