Mrs Chrissy Tait

Chrissy was born and raised in Barrow and attended Barrow Girls’ Grammar School, before beginning her chosen career in the WRNS.  She has since enjoyed a long career in human resources, working with McBride, H J Heinz and Glaxo Smith Kline and is now co-owner/director of Turnstone HR Limited, a consultancy providing a comprehensive range of HR services to a wide range of local businesses. 

Chrissy returned to Barrow with husband Ian to start a family and their only daughter, Camilla attended Chetwynde School from 1992-2007.  Chrissy served as a governor from 1999-2011 and this long association with the School will be continued when her grandson joins Reception this year.  Chrissy looks forward to once again contributing her skills and commitment to further developing Chetwynde in achieving academic, sporting and creative excellence.

Chrissy’s other interests include a wider commitment to the community in a variety of ways, including serving as a magistrate on the South Cumbria bench.
