Headteacher, Fulham Primary School
I started my teaching career in Australia in 1991 and after nine wonderful years made the decision to move to London to see the world and experience teaching in the UK. I began my overseas career at Queen’s Manor Primary school as a class teacher and Head of the Special Needs Unit. In 2005 I took on the additional role of Deputy Head alongside Sonja Harrison.
In September 2009 I was appointed to the position of Head at Fulham Primary School. I am very proud to be working at such an amazing community school and feel like this has become my second family. I am thrilled to be working in partnership with both Sulivan and Queen’s Manor as the Brightwells Academy Trust. Together we endeavour to give your children an outstanding education that they will treasure and remember forever.

Acting Headteacher, Queen’s Manor Primary School
I started my teaching career in 2006, in an LBHF community primary school. The diversity and sense of community was strong and I quickly developed a passion for teaching within an inner-city setting.
Following a short-term post at The British Council School in Madrid, I joined Queen’s Manor in January 2010 and after 5 years within the SEN unit and supporting across the school I spent a year at another local school as the Inclusion Lead.
With a deeper knowledge and experience of driving a school forward as part of the Senior Leadership Team, I returned to Queen’s Manor in 2015 as the Deputy Headteacher and more recently as the Acting Headteacher. I have witnessed the school go from strength to strength as part of Brightwells Academy Trust and I am proud to be part of the team during this exciting period for each of the schools.
Headteacher, Sulivan Primary School
I started my teaching career at Sulivan Primary in 1987. Having taught the whole age range and taken on a variety of leadership roles I became Head Teacher in 2009. There is a close relationship with the families in the local community and it is wonderful to see pupils that I taught now sending their children to the school! It is my 10th year of headship and I am very excited to be working in partnership with Fulham Primary and Queen’s Manor as the Brightwells Academy Trust. We are now working closely together to provide the best education for all our children.
