The Sally Walker Bursary
Sally Walker came to Finton House in 1997 as Special Needs Co-ordinator, and teacher of Geography. The following year she was promoted to Deputy Head, and took over from Emma Thornton as Headmistress in 2002. During this time Sally was inspirational as a colleague and teacher, and all who knew her have stories to tell that illustrate her amazing empathy for others and her enormous sense of fun. Her stripy tights certainly come in for comment, but all are united in their respect for her and their gratitude for the important work she did for Finton House, which continued for years after she was first diagnosed with Cancer.
When Sally finally lost her battle with the illness in 2006, her brother approached the school to discuss a fitting way for Sally to be remembered, and the idea of a bursary was born. The principles on which Finton House operates are synonymous with those that Sally brought to her teaching, and we are delighted that a bursary that will enable pupils for years to come to benefit from the excitng, inclusive and nurturing approach for which Finton House is famous, should bear her name.
