I have been the Headteacher at Puttenham CofE Infant School since September 2017. It is a privilege to be the Head of this lovely, village school. Prior to this I taught at Chilworth Infant School and St Edmund’s Primary School. I have been teaching for many years mainly in Reception or KS1 classes.

When I am not at school I enjoy reading, tennis and singing! I am a member of the Royal Surrey Choir. We perform at least twice a year at Holy Trinity Church in aid of The Fountain Centre at the hospital.
