During Alex’s career she has held a variety of positions; School Sports Coordinator, Assistant Houseparent, Head of Hockey, Head of House and most recently, Director of Sport.   A role she particularly enjoyed was as a PE SCITT Tutor at The Buckingham Partnership SCITT, this entailed training aspiring PGCE PE teachers, through the delivery of sport specific sessions and mentoring them through the challenging year.

Alex loves the simple pleasures in life of spending time with her family, walking her dog and travelling around Europe in her van.  Having retired from all competitive sport she can now be found supporting her own children on the sidelines as they embark on their sporting journeys.
