Since leaving university following a degree in education and teaching I have worked across 5 different primary schools and have be the substantive headteacher in 3 of them. It is my pleasure to now be working at Chilthorne Domer Church School and I am looking forward to helping it further grow and flourish over the years to come. ​

Out of school I am mum to two lovely children. Isaac is 7 and Arabella is 4 and they keep both me and my husband, Mark, on our toes!
