Who's who?

  • Mrs Jane Watts

    HEADTEACHER

    This is my fourth year as headteacher. Alconbury School is my first headship role and what an amazingly special place to take on this exciting opportunity. Prior to headship, I was Deputy Head for nine years and over my 20 years of teaching I have enjoyed teaching both Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils. I always refer to Alconbury School as our “Alconbury family”. This family extends to include all of the staff, pupils, parents, governors and so many members of the wider community that all make valuable contributions to our school. Every day at Alconbury I learn something new from somebody and most often it is from our pupils.

  • Mrs Hannah Mulcrone

    DEPUTY HEADTEACHER

    I have now worked at Alconbury Primary for three brilliant years! It has been a pleasure to have been welcomed into the 'Alconbury Family' and to get to know all of our wonderful children, families and staff. This year, I am teaching Year Three and I am already enjoying it.
    In the school I am responsible for our active and enterprising school council who meet regularly to improve the school. My other roles are art subject leader, a member of the Maths team and SENDCO, so I am kept busy.
    In my spare time, I enjoy reading, swimming and spending time with my family.

I am responsible for leading Computing across the school; I also lead Music with Mrs McClintock, and I particularly love being part of our weekly singing assemblies - what a joy to hear nearly 200 children's beautiful voices all singing together! I am really looking forward to taking our Choir to Young Voices at the O2 in February. This year, I have become part of the English subject leadership team, as well as the staff representative governor. In my spare time, I enjoy running, baking and reading.

    This is my second year teaching year 3 at Alconbury Primary School and I love it! It's so rewarding watching my class gain confidence and become independent young people! In school I am responsible for geography and DT but I also like to help out at sporting competitions and events.

    Outside of school I enjoy baking, keeping fit and being outdoors - exploring and having fun with my family.

  • Mrs Steph Clitheroe

    TEACHER YEAR 1

    I have taught at Alconbury School for a number of years now. I started at the covering PPA when my children were very young and soon had the pleasure of 'job sharing' with Mrs Watts in Year 2. I am now teaching in Year 1 alongside Mrs Mawhinney which is very exciting. During my teaching career I have worked and lived in Hong Kong and have had many different roles. I am now part of a team responsible for leading English in the school. My teenage children keep me very busy but in any spare time I have I like to keep active. I enjoy running and walking with our dog and I am also a keen gardener.

  • Miss Katie Brown

    This is my second year of teaching at Alconbury and I love being part of the Alconbury family. I completed a teaching practice as part of my degree here many years ago in Year One. I teach Year Two and I am History Co-ordinator. I am also part of the Maths team. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the flute and piano and sing in a choir. I love to spend time with my family and friends having days out, going shopping, and going to the cinema.

  • Mrs Carley Mawhinney

    TEACHER YEAR 1

    I have been teaching at Alconbury for 14 years now. Whilst studying for my degree I specialised in Early Years and taught in Reception for 11 years. I then went on maternity leave to have my son and returned to teach in Year One 3 days a week. I lead PSHE and feel that a child’s personal, social and health education is an integral part of their schooling and future. I also set up and run Treetops alongside Mrs Read. Treetops is a group that offers social and emotional support for all children on a weekly basis.
    In my spare time I love spending time with my son, family and two cats. Music is a big passion of mine and I love nothing more than attending live gigs. I also enjoy reading and have recently returned to playing netball in a local league.

During my career I have had many responsibilities including SENDCo, Early Years/Key Stage One leader and I was part of the Senior Management team. At Alconbury, I have just taken up the role of RE Co-ordinator which is a new and exciting challenge that I am looking forward to developing further. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym and swimming; spending time with my family and friends and going on holiday to hot destinations!

    TEACHING ASSISTANT

    I have been a member of the 'Alconbury' family for eight years. My daughter, Sasha has just graduated from university and my son, Oscar is in year 8 at Hinchingbrooke, following on from his wonderful journey through Alconbury Primary School. As parents, my husband and I chose Alconbury for our son (as we live out of catchment) and what a superb decision it was. I am lucky enough to be able to share my musical talents with the children during Collective Worship and 'Sing Up' time in the classroom. This also extends to after school clubs such as singing at the O2 in London as part of the Young Voices choir, A1 Music Festival at the Peterborough Cresset. The children also enjoy singing within the local community, particularly at Christmas. It's always so rewarding to hear the children singing in the corridors or playground. Singing releases 'feel-good' endorphins resulting in happy children! How wonderful!
