Senior Management Team Welcome
Hello, my name is Mr Morgan and I am one of the Deputy Heads. I joined the Woodlane teaching staff in 2011 as the Physical Education Subject Leader. I have a passion for health and fitness and I believe PE should be fun and enjoyable. Over my time at Woodlane I have really enjoyed sharing my passion with every pupil that has attended. I have had great pleasure in seeing many pupils develop, not only their physical skills and fitness, but their self-esteem, leadership and social skills, to become confident and mature young people.
In my role as Deputy Head, I manage Key Stage 3, I am also responsible for Behaviour and Attendance. Pupils and parents are welcome to come and see me if they have any questions and I will always try to help.
My name is Mr Heapy, one of Woodlane’s Deputy Heads. I've been working at Woodlane since 2010 and I enjoy it enormously. I’m very excited by the improvements and changes I've seen recently at school. Since 2010 I have had the pleasure of seeing hundreds of pupils pass through the school and move on and be successful with their lives. We regularly see our ex-pupils come back to Woodlane for a catch up or advice and their success is really important to all of us.
I trained as a PSCHE teacher which helps me to support the development of each pupil’s social skills and teach them about the world around them.
I have been PSCHE Coordinator, Assistant Head and now Deputy Head. In my role I am responsible for Assessment, Teaching & Learning and I also manage Key Stage 4. Pupils are welcome to come and see me if they have any questions about their progress and I will always try to help.
My name is Brigid Simmons and I am the School Business Manager at Woodlane. I have had several roles in the school since I first came to work here in 2002 and have been one of the senior managers for several years.
The school has grown considerably in the time I’ve worked here with the number of pupils more than doubling! The main office can be a really busy place as both Suzanne our Office Administrator and Richard, the Exams Officer both work in there too. You can pay for school meals, contribute to school trips or buy uniform at the main office.
Amidst all the activity, we always make time for pupils who are feeling unwell, or who need first aid, or just need a few minutes away from the playground.
