Hazel Paterson

Hazel works in education and is the Headteacher at Kingsley High School, which is one of the local authority’s special schools for young people aged 11-19.   She is passionate about working with children who did not always find learning easy and during her time there became aware of and was interested in the work of Harrow Mencap.     

Hazel became a trustee as she believes in the practice, goals, vision and values of Harrow Mencap and its attitude toward people with learning disabilities.  She lives in Harrow, is an Arsenal supporter, enjoying outdoor pursuits (running, gardening, walking, water sports).
