All About Me!

Hello, my name is Samuel but most people call me Sam.  I am a Business Admin Apprentice for Wheatley Hill Primary School, focusing on the IT side of things.  Primarily, I help manage our school’s website and social media channels that show what our school is really about, sharing all the amazing activities the children get up to within the school as well as everything the school has achieved and is achieving.


Outside of school I spend most my time with my rather oversized group of friends, or as I like to call them, my second family.  We often attend car festivals around the North East and proudly show off our own vehicles.


Whenever I am away from my friends I’m guaranteed to be with my two miniature sausage dogs, Charlie and Chloe and my other half, Hannah, who is also my best friend.


I am usually based in the reception area helping out the rest of our administration team with other general tasks. It’s quite likely you will be greeted by me at the reception desk during certain hours of the day. If so, please don’t hesitate to say hello, it’s always a pleasure speaking to any parents, carers or other visitors.

We’d love to hear from you!
