Mrs S Bouwer

Director of Studies

I hold a BA (Hons) in Classical Studies from the Open University and am currently completing an MA in Education through the IOE at Reading University.  My flair for technology and eye for detail make me the perfect person to create the school’s timetable; a job no-one else is crazy enough to take on!  I enjoy reading – and am happy to admit that I’m a fantasy and sci-fi geek – baking, and time spent with family.  Both of my children attended St Joseph’s, and my daughter is currently reading English Literature at Bristol and my son is working in the banking industry in South Africa.  

I have been working in Education for almost 10 years, although it doesn’t seem that long. My background prior to moving to Reading and into Education included time at IBM as a web designer, as junior partner at a Market Research company, and running a small charity linked with my church.
