Becky Merrick-Willson (OG 2003-2010)

Having spent seven years at Prior's Field, I have so many fond memories of my time there, especially my two years as a weekly boarder in the Sixth Form. I was lucky to be able to share three years at Prior's Field with my younger sister. Not only did I leave with amazing memories, but I also met the most incredible friends that will be friends for life; we have a very strong bond that Prior's Field instilled in us. Prior's Field not only provided me with a great education with the most supportive teachers (I will never forget Dr Smith’s Chemistry experiments) there was also an abundance of extra-curricular opportunities to get involved in, such as Duke of Edinburgh, being appointed as a Prefect and Tante Marie Cookery Course to name a few. PF set me up to enter into the working world with confidence and allowed me to take on the daily challenges of university and now my career.

Becky now works as a Digital Marketing Manager at Accenture, London.

Charlotte Merrick-Willson (OG 2007-2014)

I was fortunate to spend seven years at Prior's Field - a wonderful school and one that gave me the most amazing memories. My sister Becky was also there and sharing school life with her was very special and we will cherish it forever. Although I did not want to go down the traditional post-school route of university, I felt that Prior's Field supported me and helped me on my journey to jump straight into my working career; if Mrs Lutwyche hadn't given me the support that she did, I would not be where I am in my career. I left Prior's Field in 2014 and have loved visiting with friends over the years to see the advances and changes the school has made but also to say hello to our teachers and catch up with them. Prior's Field will always have a special place in our childhood memories.

Charlotte recently came back to talk to current pupils as part of PF Futures Day, about her interesting and varied role as PA at Savills, London.
