We are a friendly and approachable team comprising:

Matt Pilling, Careers Co-ordinator


Having taught at Wyedean since 2007 and seen a tutor group from year 7 - 11, I have grown with the school and have an understanding of the needs of our students. This coupled with my background in recruitment gives me a rounded perspective from the points of view of both student and employer. In 2011, I was appointed Careers Lead at Wyedean and continue to work hard developing our provision making it accessible and effective for our youngsters.
