Mr Ian Jackson

Parent Governor

I am a father of two. My daughter Daisy currently attends Saddleworth School and my son Jake is studying at Oldham College.

After leaving school I embarked upon an academic adventure. In hindsight some of my choices could have been better and perhaps more career oriented. I finally left academia with two diplomas and a Ba Hons degree in fine art and English. After engaging in many low paid positions, I finally managed to obtain a position as a store designer for the Co-op retail chain. I then progressed to interior design, surveying at Manchester University and finally as an Architectural technician for various companies.

I have only recently become a parent governor, starting this year 2020. As a governor I intend to make a positive contribution to Saddleworth school and hopefully improve things for both staff and pupils.
