I am NVQ Level 3 qualified and have worked in settings in Henley for a number of years. I started at Harpsden in April 2016. I have two primary school age children, a boy & a girl who love playing sport. I enjoy the great outdoors at Harpsden, I love to watch the children as they run outside in the field.
