Mrs Kathryn Boulton-Pratt
Kathryn recently retired (early) after spending 30 years in education. Prior to that, she worked for the National Westminster Bank before university and had three years as an Analytical Chemist after graduating from Manchester University. The last 19 years of her career were spent at Sheffield Girls’, as Head of Chemistry, Head of Science and then Assistant Head (Academic).
Kathryn is passionate about ‘girls only’ education and providing opportunities for individuals to fulfil their potential in whatever field they choose. Whilst her own area is Science, she always looked for opportunities for students across different disciplines, and still does. Kathryn would like to think that she has made the most of the chances that have come her way so far and was both honoured and humbled to be named as one of the WISE 20 in December 2020.
Kathryn retired in order to travel but obviously that was delayed somewhat in 2020 / 2021. Instead, she has volunteered in her local community and discovered many new places to explore around the area that she lives.
