Business Manager

  • Mrs Rachel Kennedy

    Business Manager

    After gaining an Honours degree in European Administration I moved into manufacturing accountancy. After 7 years in this field I wanted a more fulfilling role and started working in education 13 years ago and have gained the certificate, diploma and advanced diploma in school business management along with a project management qualification more recently.

    I am a part qualified accountant and am currently studying for a Masters in HR with CIPD Level 7. I have also gained the National Professional Qualification of Strategic Leaders, which has broadened my knowledge of the wider school context.

    I have responsibility for the support service areas of WKRS including Finance, HR, H&S, ICT and Facilities Management, Marketing, Catering and Cleaning

    I love working in a school environment and have a very student centered approach. I endeavor to ensure that the support services within the school enable pupils to learn and thrive in a pleasant and nurturing atmosphere with the best resources available.
