Who we are

Kay Harrison - Wicklea Local Academy Council Chair


I have worked in primary education in Bristol for over thirty years. I have a particular knowledge of Wicklea Academy, having joined the staff team at a pivotal time as the school converted from St. Anne’s Juniors to Wicklea Academy in 2015.  I worked as the SENDco at Wicklea Academy for four years until my retirement in 2019.


In my role as  Local Academy Councillor I aim to use the skills and knowledge, acquired during my career, to support the Wicklea community. Although my specialisms are English, Special Educational Needs and Inclusion, I have a great interest in curriculum development and teaching and learning styles.  

Zsuzsanna Cooke - Wicklea Local Academy Councillor 
I am a teaching assistant at Woodlands Academy. I have only recently started dipping my toes into governance and my main aim is to contribute towards the effective operation of Wicklea Academy as well as bettering myself as an educational professional. My designated areas are equality and whistleblowing. I am interested in learning languages and in my free time I like to enjoy the great outdoors with my two children. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know everyone within the Waycroft MAT and I am looking forward to working with and learning from my brilliant colleagues in the future.
