Mr Shaun Nixon

Co-opted Governor

I have been a Governor since 2016 because I enjoy volunteering to make Barnoldswick a better place.
I grew up in Barlick then moved away to go to university and develop my career. I worked in the learning and digital communication teams of the Woodland Trust and The Wildlife Trusts, creating Nature Detectives and developing lots of climate change monitoring programmes (like Nature’s Calendar and the BBC Springwatch and Autumnwatch surveys), plus other exciting online resources about the environment for schools and families.

I came back to set up my own business (Craven Digital) and raise a family. Now I look after over 100 local websites – including Gisburn Road School’s – and enjoy being creative and solving problems.

As a Governor I enjoy sharing my experience, learning from others, being part of a team and making a difference. Both of my children are at Gisburn Road and I think it is an exciting, invigorating community to be a part of.
