Central Finance, Administration & IT

Mrs Warburton

Business Manager

I have worked at Waycroft since September 2007 when I joined the admin team as the Bursar. Prior to this I worked in three very different educational settings; a Junior School in Nailsea, a preparatory school in Clifton and a large boarding school in Clifton.

I work closely with the Executive Headteacher and three Heads of School, dealing with all things financial, HR, Payroll & Pensions and Sites & Buildings. There is never a dull moment!

In my spare time I am a very ‘hands on’ grandmother to four energetic boys!

Mrs Parmenter

HR & Payroll Manager

I have been working in the Education sector since 2008 and joined Waycroft in September 2014. For three years I worked as the Office Manager in the main Waycroft office. Since 2018, I have been working as the HR & Payroll Manager across the Trust.

My job involves all aspects of recruitment, from creating adverts through to inducting all new staff into each of our academies.

I work alongside our Business Manager, preparing, checking and issuing payroll reports as well as working on all things HR related.

I am originally from Plymouth in Devon, but moved to Bristol in 1997. I live with my husband and daughter whom I love to spend time with at the weekends visiting the outdoors and going for walks in the sunshine.

Mrs Rogers

Finance Officer

I have worked at Waycroft Academy since September 2004. I have had a long association with Waycroft having attending as a pupil and my son and daughter were also educated here.

I work alongside our Business Manager and the MAT Administrator dealing with finance across the MAT.

Mr Simmons

IT Technician

I am Dave Simmons, the ICT Technician across all three schools. I went to Brislington Academy for Young Gentlemen, which I left back in 1975. I had several part time jobs during my school days including a morning paper round, a bread-round at Lyons Bakery and after I left school, not knowing what I wanted to do (and I’m still not sure), 6 weeks working at Tarrs Ice-cream. I eventually started a proper job at Phoenix Assurance, where after several mergers and takeovers, I left after 27 years’ service.

I enjoy most sports and played cricket and football for Brislington. However, my body now refuses to play any sport, so I am now a spectator.

The most enjoyable part of working at Waycroft is the Children, Staff and variety of work, no day is the same. I have even been able to fix problems not resolved by turning off and back on again!
