Sandi Wylie

My daughter attends St Peter’s and is in year 1 – she joined after our move from North London. Her experience has been excellent. I want to contribute to the schools continued improvement and development, to ensure every child’s school experience is as inclusive, diverse and developmentally challenging as it possibly can be and have the same experience as my daughter.  I have over 22 years experience as a hospital doctor and for the last 5 years as a clinical manager,  whilst maintaining my clinical practice. The management of the hospital during and after covid has ensured I have a good understanding of well-being and caring for the community. I hope to bring these skills to support the school leadership, parents and children to continue making St Peter’s an excellent school.
