Psst! - did you know?

Sarah is a natural with children and loves learning from them, except when they set her swimming challenges, which one of her pupils did once, in the hope she’d drown 

Vital Stats

  • Who or what makes you laugh until it hurts?
    • The old classics: Del Boy falling through the bar in Only Fools and Horses, the Victor Meldrew Honda song.  It doesn’t matter how many times I watch them, they are still laugh out loud funny.

    • The play ‘One Man, Two Guvnors'. Naughty limericks, witty poems and anything by Pam Ayres.

    • Malapropisms such as a four-year-old explaining to his classmates that an octopus has eight testicles.

  • What would your superpower be?
    Teleportation, and if I could summon up a five-star villa with a twitch of my nose (like Samantha in Bewitched) then that would be amazing too.
  • What's the nicest thing anyone ever said to you?
    When I left Headship, I was presented with a book which had comments from the staff and children. Two of my favourites, and funniest, came from our Reception children: 'She has hair. I like her shoes,' and ‘I don't know what she does but she has yellow hair like me.
  • What's the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?
    In my leavers’ production at primary school, I was chuffed to get the role of the Tin Man. On the night of the performance, I was very nervous and accidentally asked the Wizard of Oz for a brain rather than a heart. The scarecrow was angry that I’d stolen his thunder and we ended up having a row in the middle of stage.
  • What's your mantra?
    Reach for the stars (S Club 7 style)

The Red Arrows flew over Lincoln hospital on the day Sarah Creegan was born there; an omen perhaps, to indicate what a high-flyer she would become. Indeed we are lucky to have her as several years ago she almost came to grief when the snowmobile she was a passenger on was swallowed up by a crevice.

Sarah’s accomplished teaching career spanned more than twenty years and her experience as a highly-successful head makes her the perfect advisor and facilitator for Laughology’s education programmes. Her wealth of experience and knowledge of the inner-workings of schools and the education sector are invaluable in helping us to help schools, teachers and young people flourish.

She has held a range of primary school posts including inclusion leader and headteacher. As a highly-respected, dynamic leader, she ensured that her school went from a satisfactory Ofsted ranking to good within the first two years of her headship.

At Laughology, she uses the skills she gained through her illustrious career to help us develop effective, relevant and inspired programmes.

Sarah is now a consultant and supports school improvement and the emotional well-being of pupils, staff and school leaders. She delivers workshops and training and is a particularly effective mentor and coach.
