Katie joined the Business Management Services team in September 2015. Since joining, Katie has taken on the role of Office Management Consultant, providing a service for schools that need support due to staff absence, a recruitment gap, or possibly for training in a particular area of schools admin.  Katie enjoys learning from the various different settings she has worked in, as well as using the opportunity to share best practice of administrative processes and helping headteachers to focus on their teaching and learning responsibilities.

Katie has been involved in primary schools in Hertfordshire since 2005, initially as a Governor and then Clerk to the governors in two schools, and subsequently in the factotum school Secretary/Office Manager role. She completed her CSBM (now Level 4 Diploma in School Business Management) in April 2014. Prior to having children, Katie gained a first class degree in Pure Mathematics and French Language from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. She then qualified as a Chartered Accountant, specialising in taxation in a large London firm.

Katie has a passion for policies and for school communications. She is an expert in Microsoft Word and Excel and has helped a number of schools to develop a school brand for newsletters, letterheads and more. One of the projects of which she is most proud was the design, build and writing of a school website. Katie enjoys the challenge of seeking ways to improve and streamline processes to create a more efficient school office and is hoping her experience and enthusiasm will prove useful to HfL clients.
