Director of Development
I joined Wilson’s as Director of Development in 2018, having previously worked in a similar capacity at a number of notable independent schools. I set the development strategy for the school and am a member of the Wilson’s Associate Leadership Team. Wilson’s is a world class school that generates a huge amount of goodwill. It is the job of my office to realise this goodwill in a financial context. With Will Straw’s support, I have recently driven a successful fundraising campaign which has enabled the construction of new £3.5m music and sports facilities that open in January 2023.
Alumni Engagement Officer
Charged with managing the school’s alumni programme, I’ve been working at Wilson’s since June 2021. Across the last year and a half in the Development Office, we have launched Wolf Salient (a termly e-newsletter to keep our alumni better connected), hosted fundraising receptions, and delivered the inaugural Wilson’s Giving Day, which raised £135,536 to help fit out our new building with sports and music equipment. I’m an Old Wilsonian myself (2018), and am looking to enhance the school’s alumni offering further. If you have any alumni-related queries or ideas, please email me – it’s always great to hear from OWs about what they are up to!
