I am a retired Executive Head Teacher and Consultant Leader for the National College of School                                                                                                                                     Leaders. I have supported schools throughout the country to help them improve their management                                                                                                                           and leadership skills. As a Consultant Leader I worked alongside many other professional people,                                                                                                                             giving talks and presentations at a variety of conferences.
I am a former resident of Harriseahead and began my working life at Thursfield in 1965.                                                                                                                                                       Four generations of my husband's family attended this school.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Therefore it is very close to my heart and I am very pleased to be a part of its future.
