Dear Parents and Carers,
On Wednesday 23 October 2019, we said goodbye to Mrs Barbara Bell after 31 years as the cook at Wooden Hill.
Barbara Bell started work in our kitchen on 29th February 1988. She had previously worked as a kitchen assistant at Great Hollands School then some other part time jobs locally while her daughter was small.
When her daughter started school, she spotted an advert for the position of cook at Wooden Hill and went straight to the school. She spoke to the Headteacher who offered her the job on the spot. She jumped at the chance to do her dream job and has never looked back!
Her commute has never been terribly arduous as she lives on Wooden Hill!
In the years that followed her appointment, the school catering was first taken over by Bracknell Forest then a series of contactors. Barbara has worked hard to maintain her own high standards throughout.
Barbara says that she has loved every minute of her time at Wooden Hill.
Good luck Barbara and enjoy your retirement!
