What led you to be a bursar?
My background is in accounting and finance, but I always wanted to join an organisation with more of a community spirit. When I saw the position at Branwood I applied and was successful!
What’s the best part of your job?
The variety! Every day brings a different challenge which really helps to keep things exciting and fresh.
If you weren’t a bursar, what would you be doing now?
I imagine I would still be working in finance, perhaps as part of a charitable organisation.
What’s your most memorable moment from your role as bursar?
Probably the first MacMillan Coffee Morning that I saw happening in school. It was lovely to see the whole school community coming together to raise money for such a worthy cause.
How would you like to be remembered by the pupils?
As a member of staff who was approachable and friendly. I’d like to think that the children know that they can pop in to see me at any time with any question!
What surprises you about Branwood?
How well behaved the children are! We have so much positive feedback from everyone who comes into school, and from the venues where children have visited for school trips.
What makes you proud of Branwood?
The sense of community spirit that everyone shares. We have so much involvement in community activities from the PTA, parents, children and staff and it makes me very proud to belong to a school that truly cares.
If you had one word to sum up life at Branwood, what would it be?
