Fran has been College Manager since 2008 and looks after many of the practical aspects of College life. She has spent most of her career working with different types of students. A theology graduate herself, she has particular tutorial responsibility for College students who have chosen to study theology for interest and personal development or to be better able to serve in a lay capacity in local churches. Recently Fran has been much involved in the College's preparation to join the ecumenical Common Awards.
Fran is a licensed lay minister at her local Anglican church, where she preaches regularly and is also involved in clergy development in the Diocese of Bristol.
She also enjoys learning Latin, visiting ancient sites and listening to Celine Dion.
