Adminstrator / Staff


I joined Upper Beeding Primary School in January 2013 and work in the School Office. I absolutely love my job and feel very privileged to be part of such a wonderful school.

I was born in Eastbourne and then spent my childhood and school years in Horsham. I have always lived in Sussex except for two years during my twenties when I spent time near Stuttgart in Germany. I have a secretarial background and before I had my children I worked in a private bank, estate agency and national housebuilder. I then worked part-time whilst bringing up my five children and returned to full-time work when my youngest child started school.

I now live in Ashington with my husband and three youngest children, the older two having flown the nest.

I like to spend my free time with my family and pet dog, Joey. We often enjoy long walks over the South Downs or along the coast. I have a very keen interest in health and nutrition and also enjoy yoga/pilates
