Alison Bound celebrates 35 years at Oswestry School

This week, Mr Middleton and Mrs Belk presented Mrs Bound with a bunch of flowers to celebrate her 35 years of loyal service at Oswestry School. Alison started her career as a laboratory technician at the senior school in 1987, it was in this role that she assisted a pupil who suffered from cerebral palsy with performing experiments that were made difficult by her condition. Alison says that this is where she found her passion for supporting pupil’s learning and she went on to gain her qualification in learning support and worked for several years in the LS department at the Senior School. A self-professed ‘maths geek’, Alison really enjoys teaching pupils Maths and gets great satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment when her pupils have that ‘lightbulb moment’ in the classroom. 

When years 5 & 6 moved down to the prep school site at Bellan House, Alison migrated down there with them and has continued to work alongside the team. Alison teaches Maths and also works really hard to champion pupils’ mental health as a learning mentor. She is passionate about the strength of our pastoral care and offers pupils a listening ear if they have any worries or concerns. She says that she works hard to help them help themselves by guiding them on finding the right tools with which to do this. 

Alison is our second longest-serving current member of staff, following Bellan House colleague Sue Davies who celebrated 35 years of service last summer.

Alison has been married for 36 years and apart from maternity leave for her three children, she has enjoyed working at the school since 1987. 

Thank you Alison for your dedication and hard work, here’s to many more years!
