PSA Meet Our Committee

Sheralee Coles – Chair

Hi, I’m Sheralee , busy mum of three.  I have been Chair since 2018, when my first born started at Arnewood.  Oakleigh spent 5 happy years at Arnewood and is now studying at College.  Finleigh is currently in year 8 and my youngest is still in Primary School.  My motivation for joining the PSA, was to be able to get more involved in the school when my eldest joined Arnewood, where as a parent, I suddenly felt “out of the loop”.  I have enjoyed being part of an amazing team since joining and would encourage parents to join.

Kat Smith – Secretary

Hello! I’ve been PSA Secretary for the last 3 years, my daughter who attended The Arnewood School is now at college and my son is in Year  10. I work full time but find some time in the evenings to be PSA Secretary – My role involves taking minutes and arranging our meetings, and also co-ordinating our activities, I’ve really enjoyed meeting other parents and helping to raise money for the school at the fundraising events. We have a really close knit PSA team and we do enjoy evenings out having fun at the same time as supporting the school.

Tom Herbert – Treasurer

Joined the PSA team in 2023 as the Treasurer, I’ve always done various volunteering roles and this is a way I feel that I can support the community I’ll be a part of for the next 6 years and make things better for all of the students. I’m looking forward to working with the other PSA members and having some fun along the way.



Nikki Buchan – PSA Staff

Hi, I am Nikki.  I joined the PSA in April 2022 shortly after joining Arnewood School as a member of staff as the SEN Admin Assistant in the Learning Support Department.  I have one son who is currently in Year 6 at Junior School, but he will hopefully be moving up to Arnewood when he starts Year 7 next September.  The PSA team are a lovely bunch of highly motivated and enthusiastic people who not only made me feel very welcome when I joined, but have at their core a deep desire to enhance the overall Arnewood School experience of all our students by assisting the school to provide valuable additional facilities and events. 

Nicki Benoit-Means – PSA Friends

Hi, I’m Nicki. I joined the PSA in 2019 and have helped organise second-hand uniform donations and sales, as well as other fundraising events in the past.  Although both my children have now finished at Arnewood, being a ‘friend’ of the PSA is a great way to connect with other parents (as well as have a giggle whilst raising funds for school!)
