Following a career in Catholic Education spanning almost 39 years, where I worked in the primary sector as a headteacher for fifteen years and served on the governing body of two catholic, secondary schools, I was delighted to become a member of St Wilfrid’s Governing Body.


I have a genuine interest in school improvement at all levels and a deep rooted belief in the importance of education for all, providing a safe inclusive and nurturing environment in which both pupils and staff are challenged to achieve their full potential.

I have two sons, one of whom, has attended St. Wilfrid’s since 2016 and hopefully his brother will be joining him next year. My husband and I were both raised in the Catholic faith and are keen for our sons to experience the benefits of a catholic education as we did.


Professionally, I am a Senior Audit Manager for a large multinational organisation within the financial services and employee benefits sector and also a member of the CIIA and Women in Leadership programme. Since graduating in 2003, I have worked in audit within many different sectors including; local government, schools, NHS, aviation as well as financial services. This has enabled me to gain an excellent understanding of governance as well as experience in supporting businesses to achieve their objectives. It is this experience coupled with my faith which I hope to draw upon for my role as Foundation Governor to assist in making St Wilfrid’s even better than it already is!

I was a first time parent at St.Wilfrid’s last year. Since my son started at St. Wilfrid’s, I have been amazed at just how personable everyone is. I wanted to be one a parent governor so I could put my skills to use at school. I have been a photographer for a few years and I have to quickly develop a rapport with young children and parents alike. I'd love to be able to help anywhere I can within the school. I've also worked in retail for over 10 years where I've had to use many social skills.

Amongst other jobs, I've also trained as an interior designer where I put to use my creative and artistic skills. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in and helping wherever I can and help all areas within the school to aim high, believe and achieve

Having worked at St Wilfrid’s for the last 3 years, I feel I have the knowledge, understanding and skills to take on the role of staff governor. I understand the importance of a strong governing body in the development of a school (having worked as a Clerk in the past) and also believe that strong links should be maintained between the governing body and the staff who work day-to-day at St Wilfrid’s. As a passionate supporter of Catholic education, and as a practising Catholic myself, I am keen to support the school further on its journey to being a good and ultimately outstanding school.

I became the Headteacher of St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School in January 2014. I have worked in catholic education for at least 15 years. I have skills in evaluating the progress of the school against our school action plans and working with the Governing Board to ensure our targets are met.
