I have worked in Cambridge for 25 years, more recently as the Minister at Barnwell Baptist Church (since 2004).  I have been a Governor at Fen Ditton Community Primary School since 2008 and have been the Chair of Governors since September 2019.

I was a founding Trustee of Cambridge and District Youth for Christ, Cambridge Street Pastors and more recently, Abbey People.  I am also a Trustee of SeeSaw PreSchool.

I served as Chaplain to Cambridge United Football Club for 12 seasons from 2005 through to 2017, and I am currently the Chaplain to the Cambridge base of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

I am married with four boys and in my spare time I enjoy kicking a (round) ball around and watching films, when not out driving and walking our two dogs.

I am a social historian and community engagement officer working in the city.  I have worked in museums in the UK and Canada; running events, managing teams and bringing people closer to the history around them.  I have been a governor with Fen Ditton Community Primary School for just over a year, and have really enjoyed being closer to my community.

I am very passionate about learning valuable skills and I enjoy all kinds of sewing and crafting as well as looking after my allotment.

Mr Fish will be in place as Headteacher from the beginning of April 2022 to oversee the final opening preparations.

Having always dreamt of building a school community from scratch, being appointed as the first Headteacher of Marleigh Primary Academy is a real privilege.  Mr Fish was previously Headteacher of Over Primary School for nine years and taught in several other Cambridgeshire primaries before that.  Having spent his childhood in Yorkshire, he studied at Homerton College, University of Cambridge; fell in love with the city (and a local girl!) and has lived in the area ever since.  Mr Fish is currently in the second year of a Master’s degree in school leadership.

Mr Fish has always seen the value in implementing the innovative and creative use of technology to engage and motivate children, combining this with making the most of outdoor and real-life learning opportunities.  He is passionate about ensuring all children, regardless of background, ability or educational needs, have the best possible learning experiences; preparing them with the character, knowledge and skills they will need to thrive both now and as adults within Cambridge’s STEM-based economy.
