West Hill Primary Academy

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!!



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 joined the admin team in June 2017, having previously worked for a secondary school admin team for eight years. I now work as Admissions Officer for West Hill and really enjoy the role. The children are what a makes a school and we are very lucky here at West Hill – our children are engaging, bright, polite, kind and funny, quite simply wonderful!

Darren Stephens
Communications Manager

I have been working in educational IT for nearly two decades. In my role as Communications Manager, I am responsible for helping to inform parents, carers, the local community and the wider public about the Galaxy Trust, each academy within the Trust and, of course, to celebrate the work and achievements of the pupils. I produce the weekly newsletters for each school and keep the websites and our social media platforms up to date. I enjoy running a club that's lets children explore their creativity in Minecraft.
