Thanks to Gabrielle Close!

Gaby Close

A big thank you to Gabrielle Close (née O’Meara OW 1987) who has done a fantastic job in organising more than 20 of her yeargroup (so far!) who will join us at our summer reunion on Saturday 1st July.

Gaby showed her leadership skills from an early age as House Captain and Captain of Netball at Wells and she won the UVI Languages Prize. She has been a loyal OW over the years and also organised a 2007 reunion for her year.

After Wells, Gaby went to University of Surrey to read International Studies and Linguistics. She went on to Sandhurst and later served in The Royal Signals Corps.

After leaving the army she went to Brunel for a Masters in Education (SEN) and is now Interim Head of Special Educational Needs & Disability Operations, Autism Strategic Lead at Surrey County Council. A major focus of her recent work has been the opening of four purpose built highly specialist centres hosted by local schools in Surrey where the number of children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder has risen by 50% since 2009.

We very much look forward to welcoming Gaby and all her friends next week for what promises to be an excellent occasion.
