A Birmingham school has added strength to its senior management team with the appointment of a Director of Finance and Operations. Sue Bowron joins Hallfield School from Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy where she was Finance Director for seven years.
Sue, a highly qualified Chartered Accountant, will have oversight of financial and operational management across the school, including all aspects of financial operations, human resources, strategic planning and risk and compliance at Hallfield.
“I joined Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy in January 2011 and prior to that I was a governor at my daughter’s school for four years. I’ve always been interested in being part of an institution which helps people. It sits with me morally. The idea of enabling children to develop and achieve their full potential is one of the reasons I moved towards education,” said Sue. “Hallfield School is an established brand with a great reputation and lots of history. I’m looking forward to being part of its future.”
