It was such a privilege working with Mrs Bramhall (Julie) in my time at Abram. I first met Julie when I visited the school as a prospective candidate for the role of headteacher. She was in school and as a member of the governing body, showed me around, helping me to come to the decision to apply for the post. A few months later, I can clearly recall Julie asking searching questions of me in the interview process. At the time of my appointment Julie was doing supply work and supporting the year six children as they prepared for SATs, but as the months went by, Julie was so dedicated to the school, that she looked for any opportunity to take a more proactive role in the teaching and learning, eventually being appointed a full-time teacher and then Assistant headteacher. We shared the same philosophy of wanting the best for the children excellence and enjoyment and to this end, together we introduced musical theatre into the curriculum, reintroduced residential experiences and with the parents the year six leavers discos. We had so many laughs taking the children to Low Bank Ground. One year I had a birthday and Julie with the other party leaders got me a pile of presents to help me in my old age. Julie was a fantastic teacher, innovative and always wanted the best experiences for the children in her care. The experiences that the children were given by you will live in their hearts and minds for the rest of their lives and you will be remembered with love and affection.

Where do I begin, I went to school when I was younger, and Mrs bramhall (Julie) helped me so much in year 6, I left primary in 2012,and I remember her writing on my leavers shirt "don't be a stranger" well that all changed, she then went onto teaching my brother Owen, who now in year 7 and my other brother Kyle who's in year 4/5. Julie was incredible and so inspirational and Julie would always put the children first, gone but never forgotten and I will never forget the memories I had with her and the things when I left school I still have and will cherish them forever! Julie one last thing you were simply the best! ❤️❤️
