Staff Profile: April Smith

April Smith

Secondary School History Teacher

April graduated from the University of Birmingham and teaches KS3 and KS4 History.

April has been a teacher of history for 15 years and loves her job. In that time she has had the privilege to teach students from Key Stage 3, 4 and at IB diploma level with each bringing their own challenges and joy. Furthermore, she has had the pleasure to teach students from many rich and varied backgrounds, having taught at an inner-city school in Birmingham UK and in an international school in Qatar. Each experience has taught her something new about the world and different cultures, which is fascinating. She has had several years’ experience in leadership positions, including Head of History, Key Stage 3 leader and Assistant Head of Secondary. However, she is looking forward to focusing on teaching History solely and doing more of the thing she loves – teaching.
