Dr Tim Miller Visits Northwood College for Girls


We were delighted to welcome the new Chair of the GDST, Dr Tim Miller, to Northwood College for Girls this week.

With broad experience in both executive and nonexecutive positions and an understanding of education, business and governance issues, Dr Miller is ideally placed to build on the Trust’s success as a dynamic leader in girls’ education.

Dr Miller took up his new role last September and at the time said, “I am delighted to be joining The Girls’ Day School Trust and am very much looking forward to working with Chief Executive, Helen Fraser, and her team. This is an exciting time for girls’ education as we seek to inspire and support the next generation of female leaders and innovators. There is much for us to be proud of and much still to do.” Dr Miller is a graduate of the University of Stirling. He has an MBA from the Scottish Business School and is a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) from Nottingham Trent Business School. He started his career as an academic before moving into Human Resources and worked for a number of blue chip organisations including Standard Life and Glaxo Wellcome before joining Standard Chartered Bank as Director and Group Head of Human Resources.

He has held a number of senior global roles within Standard Chartered and was its Vice Chairman, Governance until June 2014. Dr Miller is currently Chairman of the Governing Body at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, where he is also a member of the School’s Nominations Committee and chair of its Remuneration Committee. In addition to these roles, Dr Miller is a Member of the School Advisory Board at Nottingham Trent University Business School, a Visiting Professor of Business Management and Strategy at Nottingham Business School and a non-executive director of Michael Page Group plc.

Following a tour of our school, Dr Miller met with each member of our Senior Management Team and the Heads of Faculties. He was very impressed by our school and was warmly welcomed by girls and staff alike.
