Meet the team

Andy Carr - Deputy Head of Learning – Visual & Performing Arts and English

I have been teaching Media & Film since 2009. I’ve worked all over the country, but I grew up in Burgess Hill and know Mid-Sussex very well. I’m a big film and video game geek, but love talking about TV and news too. I firmly believe being able to critically and objectively analyse what we watch and read is of paramount importance in today’s media-obsessed world. My teaching style revolves around inclusive attitudes and strong work ethic, with some humour thrown in. I look forward to you joining us at Haywards Heath College.

Nat Wilcox - Teacher of Media & Film

I have had the pleasure of studying Media and Film for just under a decade with a degree specifically in Media Production. I am passionate about the subject and being able to explore the different areas and making each section as creative as possible.
