    Head of Humanities, Geography Teacher

    Kaye MacIver

    I have a Bachelor of Arts from the Australian National University and a Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary) from La Trobe University both in Australia. Since the beginning of my career in education in 2001 in Australia I have taught the age range of 11-18 focusing on History, Geography and recently Sociology. I taught Humanities in Australia for a number of years before travelling to Canada to work for a ski season. From there we travelled to the United Kingdom where my husband and I have lived since 2006. I gained my Qualified Teacher Status for the UK in 2007. In 2007, I was chosen to represent the Essex County Council as part of the British Embassy’s Creative teacher exchange, with schools in Pretoria, South Africa focusing on the development and sharing of good practice. In 2008 I took on the role of Head of Humanities at a school in Essex.

    Chris Planchant

    Geography Teacher

    Chris Planchant

    I was born and brought up in Swansea, South Wales described by Dylan Thomas as an “ugly, lovely town”, which sums the area up perfectly.  On completion of my A-levels at eighteen I went to Liverpool John Moores University. Here I studied a Bachelor of Science in Geology and attained a 2:1 with honours in 2004.

    At school and throughout my younger years I had always immersed myself in a variety of sports.  I became very good at rugby. On completing my academic studies I decided to pursue the sport I loved and I was lucky enough to play professionally for several teams including North Otago in New Zealand and the Doncaster Knights in England. My career lasted until 2010 when I suffered a serious knee injury that put an end to my full-time rugby career.

    The injury paved the way for my teaching career. I had always harboured ambitions to become a teacher having been taught by some truly inspirational people during my childhood who always encouraged me to follow my dreams and taught me the importance of a good education.  I became a qualified teacher in 2012 through the Graduate Teaching Program in South Yorkshire. Here I successfully taught Geography and Geology to A-level and was rapidly promoted to second in department in Geography and Head of Geology.
