Beech Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs Savage

I am delighted to be joining the Whitegate family in a teaching capacity. I already know many children and families as I have been working at Whitegate since April 2017 as the Special Needs Coordinator. I’m looking forward to become more involved in the life of the school as Beech class teacher. I have been teaching for 12 years and I’m excited to bring my experiences and love of the role, to Whitegate. Out of school I love spending time with my family including Mr Savage and our two boys, Hayden and Blake. We especially enjoy spending time outdoors, walking, exploring and gardening. I also love music and keeping active and healthy.

Mrs Corcoran

I am thrilled to join the Whitegate family, working alongside Mrs Savage in Beech class. I am passionate about nurturing and providing every child with the highest quality of education possible, allowing them to reach and exceed their potential. I have been teaching for 10 years in a variety of schools and look forward to bringing all my experience and knowledge to Whitegate. Out of school, I enjoy going to the cinema, going out for meals but mostly I love spending time with my family, Mr Corcoran and our daughters Ella and Maggie.
