The Pioneer Federation Janette Wicks


I was born in Bromley and my father was in the RAF so I have lived in Ireland, Cyprus, Germany, Wales and of course England! I think this must be where I get my love of travelling and visiting different countries from!

When I left school I worked in a bank from 1980-2001. I am the Bursar at Chiddingly Primary School and East Hoathly CE Primary School. I have worked at East Hoathly CE Primary School since 1st October 2001 and worked at both schools since 1st September 2017.

I enjoy working for the Pioneer Federation and watching the children learn and grow through their years at Primary School as they get ready for Secondary School. I am married to my husband Ian and have two grown up sons, Thomas and Toby. I also have a stepson Ryan and stepdaughter Chloe and lovely grandchildren who call me ‘Nanette’. I love spending quality time with my family and love family holidays. My hobbies are travelling/holidays/sightseeing, socialising (with family, friends and the Pioneer staff), reading, card-making, swimming, walking and I love a bit of bingo!
