According to her colleagues, Sue is impactful on everyone she meets, works with, leads and teaches. Generations of families have been inspired by her enthusiasm, positivity and aura. 

Sue will retire at the end of this academic year, bringing to a close a 39-year career in teaching, which she has dedicated entirely to this school and to the Harold Wood community. Her legacy is palpable: a love for learning, a zest for life and a desire for levelling up.  

From humble beginnings, Sue is passionate about the communities to which we belong, the opportunities we can afford others and the power of education in the lives of young people.   In 2022 Redden School was recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Sue was an integral part of the Senior Leadership Team who demonstrated an absolute commitment to deliver a first class education to local families.   

Colleagues describe Sue as “an incredible servant to education” and a “fantastic ambassador for lovely, kind people across the world”.
