Sue Manser’s career has been built in education. She qualified as a secondary school teacher having attended Rolle College Exeter and subsequently obtained a B.Ed. (Hons) in Educational Management from London University.
Sue moved into the independent sector after 21 years in the state sector and took up a deputy headship in a large through school with boarding. As the sole deputy, she oversaw both the academic and pastoral work of the entire school. This breadth of experience led to her first Headship. Over Sue’s six-year tenure she built a school from 65 pupils to 280 before moving onto a Headship in a British International school in Egypt. Sue returned to the UK after 4 years in Egypt and had a short post as Head in a girl’s school.
Sue’s current role is with the Independent Schools Association supporting schools and Headteachers in the London West region. The area has over 90 schools with schools as small as 20 pupils and as large as 1400. The ISA has every type of school and Sue’s school experience has been invaluable to her role within. She is delighted to be supporting Hemdean House as the Chair of Governors.
