Assistant School Business Manager
& SEN ADMIN
I joined the Boxgrove team in January 2020 having worked in primary education for the past 33 years. Arriving at Boxgrove, I quickly discovered what a caring, inclusive school it is and what a friendly staff team exists here. Outside of work, I play hockey each week and love to go skiing but sadly, not often enough.
I love working at Boxgrove, hence why I’ve stayed for over 20 years! No two days are the same, in fact no two hours are the same and that’s what makes working here so special. Working alongside two headteachers is double the fun – “two heads are really better than one“! Boxgrove isn’t just a school, it’s a family that cares for everyone who has ever been a part of it. Outside school I like to travel and spend time with my family and friends. Gardening is fast becoming my new favourite hobby but I’ve got a lot to learn!
I joined Boxgrove Primary School in September 2004, working in the front office and in finance. I deal with admissions, school trips, payroll and very exciting things like that! Every day is different! I am also a staff governor. My favourite part of my job, apart from working with a lovely team of people, is seeing the children each day. Outside of school I love reading classic novels, am an avid tennis fan and love to spend time with my family and friends.
I started working at Boxgrove 10 years ago as a Teaching Assistant and worked across various year groups. In 2017 I joined the admin team as Finance Officer. I also work alongside Mrs Wright, SENCO supporting her with all administrative duties. Working at Boxgrove and having 2 roles gives great variety. Outside of school I enjoy gardening and long country walks. I have recently started cycling to work which I love!
I was a parent at Boxgrove a long (long) time before I got a job in the office. I work (and play) with an amazingly supportive group of people who I’m lucky to call friends. No day is the same and that is down to the children here who keep us on our toes – in a good way! When I’m not chasing parents and reminding them to book lunches, doling out cold compresses or counting lunch bands you’ll find me on the Downs with my dog or running (slowly) around Stoke Park.
I’ve been in and out of Boxgrove in various positions since 2011, as a parent, a midday supervisor and as a BPTA volunteer. I’m really looking forward to being at the school full time and getting to know you all better. You’ll find me in the front office. Come and say Hello!

I have been working at Boxgrove for 9 years now and I can’t wait to get to know our new Year 4 children. I’m a geographer at heart and enjoy all sports (either participating or watching). I love teaching maths and might even be spotted playing TTRockstars!
I have been working as the HSLW here at Boxgrove for 10 years and I thoroughly enjoy it! There are so many opportunities to do great activities with the lovely children who attend Boxgrove. I especially enjoy running the Young Carers club in school. Prior to this I was a secondary school teacher for many years teaching Spanish and French – I still love languages! I have 3 children all at secondary school who keep me busy when I am not in school.
