Mrs Sarah Bunnell-Pyper

Sarah grew up in the North of Scotland, specifically at Gordonstoun School where her father was Headmaster for over 20 years. Sarah attended the school herself before attending Oxford Brookes University to study Performing Arts with Communication, Media and Culture. Following University, Sarah worked in admin roles in Oxford before going to work in the Development Office at St Peter’s College which is part of the University of Oxford.

In 2018 Sarah moved to Reading Blue Coat to work in the then newly created Foundation Office as Community Relations Coordinator. Sarah created a bespoke events programme for the Old Blues Community and set up Reading Blue Coat Connect by means of engaging the wider community with the School. In August 2021, Sarah took on the role of Foundation Director and is delighted to continue working towards the Foundation Office’s goal of increasing the bursary provision at the School through fundraising and engagement. Most recently, Sarah married her partner Tom in Scotland at the end of October 2021.

In her spare time, Sarah enjoys going to the theatre, having run a theatre company in the past, both producing and performing in plays herself. She also enjoys walking, reading and spending time with family and friends. She is a huge dog lover and hopes to one day own her dream dog (a corgi).
