Deputy Head Co-curriculum

Mrs Sally Walmsley is the Deputy Head Co-curriculum.

Sally attended boarding school and read Physiological Sciences at Exeter College, Oxford. While at Oxford she was part of a team that won the Varsity Match in sailing and then persuaded the Blues Committee that women should earn a full blues like the men, rather than half blues.

Sally trained as a solicitor and had a 12-year career in law, which included working in San Francisco, Paris and London. She then moved into teaching Biology at St Swithun’s, a leading independent girls’ school in Winchester. She was quickly promoted to the role of Housemistress and then to Head of Sixth Form.

Sally champions the importance of holistic education. She still loves sailing and enjoys running, tennis, hockey, cycling, swimming and Pilates.  

It is an honour to work in a school which values the co-curricular element of education so highly, and aspires to continue to raise the profile of service, partnership and community spirit alongside traditional academic education.
