I left RGS in 1999 after completing my A-levels in art, French, German and general studies. Although my older brother and sister went to university after RGS I actively chose not to go down this route. I joined Wolseley in Jan 2000 as an accounts payable clerk and was promoted to team leader after one year with the company. I am now finance business support manager (qualified by experience) and responsible for two large transactional teams, covering supplier/customer relationships and payments. I have recently decided to return to learning through Leeds City College and am working towards my Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development level 5 professional qualification. I have been married for 15 years with three children and still live locally. At school I was swimming captain for School House and loved LV Smith and art lessons! I also enjoyed both the French and German exchanges and am now proud to see my 11-year-old son Robert at the school!
