Having graduated from Exeter University, I began my teaching career working in a Primary school in Sandhurst, very similar to Balcombe. Since then I have worked in a variety of settings and areas, from a small rural Primary in the New Forest to a larger urban Junior school in Southampton. All have presented me with very different challenges, but also a great variety of learning opportunities.
I took up the post of Headteacher at Balcombe School in September 2009 – my second Headship. During my 25 years in teaching, I have seen many changes, but I am still excited about the future of education and look forward to leading further developments to make Balcombe School even better than it already is. I feel very privileged to work here, with such a supportive and hardworking team.
