About Us Our people Trustees Trustee - Hazel Paterson Hazel Paterson My background is in education and I am currently headteacher at Kingsley High School, which is one of the local authority’s special schools for young people aged 11-19. I began my career teaching English and PE in high schools but quickly became interested in working with children who did not always find learning easy, eventually becoming a SENCo and senior leader as this seemed to be the best way to get things done. It was during my time at Shaftesbury High school that I became more aware of and interested in the work of Harrow MENCAP as an organisation which was putting into practice the goals, vision and values that I share regarding provision and attitudes toward people with learning difficulties and disabilities. So when becoming a trustee was mentioned I was more than happy to apply. I live in Harrow, am an Arsenal supporter, enjoy outdoor pursuits (running, gardening, walking, water sports) and will happily watch live sport or crime drama on t.v.
