Alex Mason  Chair of Governors

Hi everybody. I’m Group Captain Alex Mason and I’ve been formally appointed by the Senior British Officer, General Mead, to be the Chair of the School Governors Committee. Whilst I’ve been appointed into the role as a formal Secondary Duty, I’m also a very willing volunteer. 

I arrived in Naples in January 2022 and this is my first role in NATO. I am a Logistics Officer by background, having joined the Royal Air Force in 1998, but out here I am responsible for Strategic Communications. I am serving here Unaccompanied and I don’t have any children of my own, but I am very keen to be involved within the British Community.

I hope that my appointment as the Chair of the Committee will allow me to act as an objective critical friend and as an interlocutor with the multitude of organisations with an interest in the school. I am particularly keen to ensure that the School Infrastructure Project (which is led by a UK-based organisation) goes as smoothly as possible and the quality of children’s education provision is not compromised at any stage.  

Surg Cdr Anthony Gregory

I am 45 years old, from Liverpool and have been based in Naples for 18 months, and have now been a member of the School Governors Committee as the Safeguarding lead for a year.
I have enjoyed my role, particularly when Governor of the Month when I have visited the school and joined in on Friday Assemblies.
My back ground is as a qualified Medical General Practitioner and I have been in the Royal Navy since 2003. I trained as a GP while in the Navy, undergoing my training on NHS attachments in Hampshire.
I initially served in submarines before becoming Principal Medical Officer of HMS Ocean, a helicopter carrier in 2009. I have also served as Principal Medical Officer in Gibraltar and at HM Naval Base Clyde (better known as Faslane).
I am married to Jen, a teacher working in the UK at St Helens College, and we enjoy hill walking and cycling.
I very much look forward to continuing my role on the SCG for another year, when I am due to leave Naples.

Cdr Brian Lockhart

I joined the Royal Navy in May 1987 as an Air Engineering Apprentice and have completed a range of roles including 2 tours in the Royal Navy Air Engineering Training School and 1 tour as the Career Manager for all RN Air Engineering and Survival Equipment ratings.

Personal and organizational development has been the cornerstone of my career and I relish the opportunity to assist in the continuous improvement of our school as the SGC Communication Officer; a role I hope to fulfil until the end of 2023.

I am married to Alison, who is an educator by profession and the current BFS Naples SHEF Co-ordinator & Office Administrator. We very much enjoy crafting gin and, with our little dog, Ebony, exploring all that Italy has to offer. 

Gareth Wiggin (Nos)

I joined the RAF as an air traffic controller in 2001 and controlled at bases around the UK and in Cyprus and Iraq. After a tour in Afghanistan I worked on exchange with the British Army and then as XO of RAF Gibraltar before returning to the UK to command my own control tower. Most recently I have been on exchange at United States Strategic Command in Omaha, Nebraska, and then worked at the UK’s Permanent Joint Headquarters at Northwood. I moved to Naples in November 2021 with my wife Katie and twin daughters Lucy and Cora. Both girls attend BFS Naples and Katie is treasurer of the PTA (Friends of BFS). I am the SGC member with responsibility for infrastructure and will be monitoring UK Strategic Command and DIO closely as they deliver the new school.
