Joseph ApplebyChair of Resources Committee, Parent Governor
Joseph was educated locally at Seaford College in Petworth, before completing a degree at the University of Plymouth, then returning back to West Sussex to start his career at Langmead Farms. Joseph is now Managing Director of his family business in Southampton, Botley Mills, which manages numerous commercial tenants and has a variety of different retail interests.
Their youngest son Oliver has been at CFS since its inception in 2013 and they were able to bring their other son, Thomas, to CFS, as the school opened more years. Oliver has now moved in to Secondary alongside his brother and so the family have experienced all sides of the school.
Joseph had a traditional boarding school upbringing and feels many of the qualities he enjoyed can be adopted by the free school’s flexibility. He strongly believes that our ethos and message of Nurture, Challenge and Inspire echoes through every aspect of the school and will be further enhanced by our move to the Convent in September 2018 and that the qualities that CFS instils in our children will best prepare them for the challenges they will meet in a very demanding world.
