Otter Valley Federation

Believing and Achieving Together to be The Best We Can Be

Mark Humphries

Foundation Governor

I moved to Feniton in 2010 with my wife and our two children, both attended Feniton Primary School throughout their primary education, and both now attend Kings School, in Ottery St.Mary.

I joined the Governing Board at the inception of the Otter Valley Federation in September 2013, I currently hold the portfolio of Lead Safeguarding Governor, and Chair of the Admissions Committee.

I have been employed by Devon & Cornwall Police since 2004, having previously worked in retail management, and catering management prior to that.

Outside of work, I am an Army Reservist, having joined what was then the Territorial Army in 1990. This has provided me with opportunities to travel widely across the world in support of regular and reserve forces, including undertaking operational tours.

I enjoy going to the gym, I can often also be found walking around the local area, or cycling the lanes of east Devon.


  • Ethos

    The Federation shares a strong ethos:

    We aim to reflect God's love, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

    John 10:10
