Sam moved to Bushey when he was ten years old, attending Bushey Hall School (now the Bushey Academy) before taking a degree in European Politics at the University of Kent. Sam has been a School Governor for nearly 10 years, starting at Bushey Meads School. When Bushey Meads and Little Reddings became the Bushey St James Academy Trust, he became an elected Bushey Meads Trustee. In August 2013, he took over as Chair of the Trust. At this time, the Trust was in need of new Headteachers for both schools and he coordinated the process which resulted in the recruitment of Mr Turner and Miss Simmonds to the Trust.

Previously, he worked in Local Government, including a short time supporting colleagues in Schools and Social Care. He lives with his wife, Gemma and his baby son, Rowan.
