Our School Admin Team
Our admin team keep things running in the background. We couldn’t work without them!
|Tina Henson||Office Manager
I have always worked in office administration but in a variety of roles including Clerical Assistant, PA, Assistant Manager in a Building Society and Careers Assistant at a secondary school. I joined HPS in November 2000 as an office assistant and I became the Office Manager in 2014. I have been a school governor at three different schools over the last 20 year which I thoroughly enjoy. It has been a pleasure to be involved in the growth of the school both as a member of the school team and as a governor.
|Helen Sharp||Headteacher’s PA
I worked for 25 years at the International Whaling Commission (an international organisation tasked with the conservation of whales and the management of whaling) as PA to the Head of Science which involved a great deal of worldwide travel. My first role in a school was as a School Receptionist at Kimbolton School. I joined the office team at Huntingdon Primary School in February 2013 as a Clerical Assistant. Initially I dealt with the school dinner registers and dinner money. I quickly then also became involved with the Development Centre, a self-contained on site training facility which welcomes a number of schools and local authority groups to the facility for high quality training.
In September 2014, I was honored to be chosen to become PA to the Headteacher. This is a very exciting role and I really enjoy the challenges and rewards that working at Huntingdon Primary School brings.
|Ben Henderson||IT Technician
I have been involved with computers most of my life – I was a finalist in the IT User of the year competition and then a web developer for several years. Working as a librarian I then taught computing life skills to all ages and worked with schools to develop pupil’s story telling skills. I currently teach advanced motorcycling on behalf of Lincolnshire Police as part of the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership and Essex Fire Brigade as part of Hopp Rider Training. I also instruct at Cadwell Park race track. When I’m not fixing computers or riding motorbikes I’m studying towards a law degree with the Open University.Being a former librarian, reading is one of my favourite things to do when I do manage to get a spare moment.
I joined the HPS team in July 2014 as the Receptionist in the School Office. I have always had public-facing roles and really enjoy meeting people and being helpful. I started working life as a Travel Agent (I still enjoy travelling!) and more recently was a Receptionist at a local Doctor’s Surgery. In my spare time I really enjoy baking and bringing in the results for my colleagues to try!
|Liz Taylor||Finance Administrator
I have been working at Huntingdon Primary School since January 2015. I recently moved to Cambridgeshire from Cheshire where I worked in an Administrator and Finance Role at a pre-school in Cheshire for 8 years. Prior to this I spent 10 years working in the Pharmacuetical Industry after graduating with a Maths BSc and MSc. I enjoy working in a school office environment and look forward to developing in this role at H.P.S.
