Senior Management Team

Pat Hamilton – Principal

Pat Hamilton is the current Principal of the College. She gained her wide educational experience, from 25 year in mainstream education, before deciding to diversify and become an osteopath. She obtained a Bachelors degree in education, and a Masters degree in science education, before achieving her degree in Osteopathy through part-time study as an adult learner.  She believes that the challenge of traversing this pathway to a second career has stood her in good stead in her present job  as it provides her with the impetus to ensure that the College remains focussed and meets the needs of its niche group of adult learners.
