Mick May OBE

Chair of Governors - Kensington Aldridge Academy, Secondary School of the Year and Special Services to Education Award, TES Awards 2018

On leaving the University of St Andrews, Mick May spent 20 years in finance, where increasingly he saw himself (pretty accurately) as the worst banker in the City of London. His second career saw him set up and grow the social enterprise Blue Sky, once described (again pretty accurately) by David Cameron as “the only company in the country where you need a criminal record to work there”. In 2016 he was awarded the OBE for his work in the rehabilitation work. Since 2015 he has served as Chair of Governors at the Kensington Aldridge Academy, and in August this year his memoir ‘Cancer and Pisces’ was published by Quiller.
