Claire Halket

Vice Chair

I’m the Head of HR and Company Operations at Synectics Solutions and I became interested in becoming a governor after working closely with a different school through my role at Synectics. I really felt that from a business and personal perspective that I was adding value by sharing my knowledge and experience with the team and I wanted to bring the same support and potential opportunities to Trentham Academy.

As Head of HR at Synectics Solutions, my role has had a heavy involvement in managing and supporting people, policies and processes. These range from recruitment through to making business decisions that affect the overall company. I feel that I bring not only an employer perspective into the Academy but also, I am well known for my fun and enthusiastic personality and getting the job done. This I feel will help guide and prepare the pupils for the working world as well as challenge the leadership team.

My husband and his sisters went to Trentham, my eldest daughter currently studies there and my youngest will be joining next year.

I am now a keen fitness enthusiast (having had 10 years away from any form of exercise) and love to go to the gym during my lunch. I love to read and you can usually find me with my head in a book reading about my chimp (The Chimp Paradox – Steve Peters or a good thriller by Val McDermid).
