BASILDON, ESSEX

Sharon has led an outstanding Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) for more than 30 years. During this time, she has contributed to the growth in size, success and reputation of the unit. Starting from a small

tuition service based in a local Primary School, she has led the development of the organisation

to a large PRU with 3 centres. Her dedication to improving the lives and opportunities of vulnerable

disadvantaged young people has been central to her career in education. Her work has truly

made a transformational difference to the lives of the many young people and their families whom she

and her team have supported over the years.
