Sarah Whitehead 

Headmaster's PA , Clerk to the Governors, Company Secretary and Boarding Tutor

I joined Westbrook Hay in September 2001 with a wealth of experience as a PA in the commercial world but with little knowledge of the educational side - other than as a parent. Having been on the commuter treadmill I was attracted not only to the challenge of bringing my skills and administrative knowledge to a different world, but also the certainty that the quality of my life would greatly improve. And it certainly has done that! Initially as PA to the Headmaster and Registrar, my role has grown and diversified over the years as I have taken over various areas of administrative responsibility.

Although I remain as the Headmaster’s PA, I’ve recently taken over as Clerk to the Governors and Company Secretary. My main day to day responsibility is HR Manager but interspersed with this, I am a first aider, Deputy Senior Lead for Child Protection, Breakfast Club Supervisor and Boarding Tutor.
