Qualifications: LLB (Leeds)1976
Specialist Subjects: Pupil Registration, Safeguarding, Compliance
Having graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in Law, my working life has involved time spent in HR (called Personnel in those days!), Advertising and Graduate Recruitment for a ‘top ten’ firm of accountants in London, always with a large element of administration and customer service involved in each role.
My husband’s career brought us to Cheltenham and our two children and one granddaughter have attended Airthrie from Acorn right through to Oak. We loved the homely, friendly, kind environment coupled with the small teaching groups and enthusiastic, caring teaching staff. So, when the opportunity arose to undertake a role in the administrative side of the school I grabbed it with both hands! That was more than twenty years ago and I still enjoy the day to day contact with the children, the close relationships established with both colleagues and parents and the interest of never knowing quite what each day will bring!
