Andrew Gent

Born and raised in Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, Andy has lived locally all his life. Following the completion of his Chemistry Degree, he has worked at several multi-national chemicals companies in both research and sales roles. In 2014, Andy graduated from Durham University with an MBA and has subsequently moved to a European business management role, based at Wilton, with the American chemical company INVISTA.

Along with his wife and two children, Andy moved to Ingleby Barwick in the summer of 2014, and in September 2015 his son started at Ingleby Manor Free School as part of the second year 7 intake. Andy is excited to see how the school develops and is passionate as a governor, as well as a parent, about ensuring that Ingleby Manor Free School realises its vision.
