We celebrate the past; we care about the future

Admin & Site Team

Catherine Wakeman

Business Manager

I have worked at West Hill Primary School since September 2013. Prior to that I worked in Private Banking for 22 years. I really like working in a school environment the change has been good for me. I love the variety of the work I get involved with  and the fact that no two days are the same or what the children are going to tell me!!



Claire Coldwell

Executive Assistant to the Executive Headteacher

I joined West Hill Primary in December 2014 and love being part of such a busy school office.  I am married and we have 3 sons and 1 daughter, I love singing, dancing and reading and being involved in my local community.  I was a legal PA for a Magic Circle law firm for many years and now feel very lucky to be able to use those skills and that experience working in an environment close to home and where children are at the heart of everything that we do.


Sharon Donkersley

Admissions/Finance Secretary

Since joining West Hill Primary School in 1999 as a receptionist I have covered the majority of roles in the office, my current position is Finance/Admissions Secretary which is extremely interesting and varies from day to  day.  I enjoy working at West Hill and being part of the office team.

My role as Receptionist is a busy, varied and rewarding one and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoy working at West Hill .

The staff, parents and above all children are all lovely and each day brings its own rewards.

I have been working as a site manager for over 10 years, previously I worked in a school in Thamesmead. My time here is rewarding and exciting. I am also a chairman of two local football teams. Outside of school, I have a large Avairy with a variety of Canaries as well as owning 2 large dogs who need plenty of walking.
