Maharishi School in Skelmersdale, West Lancashire, England is very pleased to announce the appointment of their new chairman of Governors, Dr Ian Birnbaum OBE.
Dr Ian Birnbaum has been involved in the highest levels of local government, educational leadership, management and administration for over 15 years.
In his final year as Director of Children's Services in the London Borough of Sutton, the Authority was graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) in the statutory Children's Services Assessment, whilst Sutton schools were routinely highly praised for their management. Dr Birnbaum completed his career as the Interim Chief Executive of Sutton Council.
In recognition of his work for local government, Dr Birnbaum was awarded the OBE in the 2012 Queen's New Year's Honours List.
''I am very proud to have become Chairman of the Governors of Maharishi School,'' said Dr. Birnbaum, praising his predecessor Richard Buswell, who ''ably steered the school through its transition to becoming a Free School.''
