  • Miss Amy Harvey


    I have been at St. Peter's for just over a year. I am absolutely passionate about the education we provide for our children and my staff equally work as a team to give the best they can for our school.
    I have three teenaged sons who I am extremely proud of and a crazy Norfolk Terrier called Dotty!
    I have been an educator for over 22 years and really can't imagine doing anything else.
    I am proud of the work we do at St. Peter's. We use a therapeutic approach to how our children are supported, and I believe it is the only way we can prepare our children for learning. #teamstpeters

  • Mrs Karen Crawley

    Governor for Safeguarding/SCR

    I am married with three children and two grandchildren, one of whom is now a pupil at St Peters; which is where my daughter in law is also a teacher. I have worked in education all of my life, firstly as a teacher and finally as a Headteacher until I retired in April and I am delighted to now be a Governor. As someone who was born and has lived in Wisbech all of my life I care passionately about wanting the best education and opportunities possible for children in this area. My areas of responsibility within the Governing Body are Safeguarding and, with all governors, Standards.

  • Mrs Emma Barnard

    Governor for PP/SEND/Mental Health

    I took on the role of St Peter's Parent Governor as I wish to help this lovely school become the very best it can be.
    I was a pupil here myself many years ago, my now teenage daughters both came to this school and my son is currently a pupil. I often volunteer in school - the staff and children are an amazing bunch to be around!
    I'm an F1 fanatic, never missing a race and also a Spurs supporter. I love a craft project, Star Wars, and anything that makes me laugh but I am happiest when I'm with my kids, my husband and our golden labrador, Kevin!

  • Mr Paul Logan

    Governor for Standards and Finance

    I joined the School as a Governor this academic year and feel privileged to be a part of its journey. My current role at Wisbech Grammar School started in September 2015 after eight years teaching at Uppingham School in Rutland. I have been teaching since 1995 in a wide variety of schools, focusing on Mathematics. Before working in education I was an accountant, specialising in auditing at Price Waterhouse Coopers, but also worked in industry at British Rail Maintenance as Chief Investment Accountant. At the Grammar, my role changed from Deputy Head Operations which encompassed events such as the Christmas Service, the Co-curricular programme, Inspections and the Calendar, to Deputy Head Academic in September 2018, where I have responsibility for all the academic aspects of the School. With what goes on in the classroom as my focus, I am glad to say I still teach Mathematics.

    I was employed in local government from leaving school but went into teaching when my children were small. I gained a BSc Degree and taught Business Studies at secondary school level and in further education. After retiring as Assistant Director of Education at a Sixth Form College I worked for Cambridgeshire County Council with a variety of governing bodies. Since leaving Cambridgeshire County Council I have functioned as Clerk to Governors in a number of schools in the Wisbech area.

    I am on the Board of Trustees of a National Charity which meets in London; and a Trustee and Secretary of a charity which promotes, health, education and community in an area of Uganda called Lumpewe. I used to play volleyball; am Vice Chair of a football club and have several wonderful grandchildren.
