Holly Gilbert

Reception Sealions Class Teacher

I have been teaching since 2011 and hold a BEd (Hons) Early Years teaching degree. I started my teaching career in a primary school in Plymouth where I worked for 3 years as a class teacher in KS2 before moving to London in 2014.

Following this, I then took on the challenge of working in a primary school in South East London where I taught in Nursery and Reception but also in Years 4, 5 and 6. Two years later, I became Assistant Headteacher, Phase Leader of Early Years and part-time Nursery Teacher in a primary school in Bexley. Through my role as Assistant Headteacher and EYFS Phase Leader, I developed many different skills, which I feel that I can bring to my role at BSB Sanlitun.

I am a very positive, outgoing and friendly person who loves to travel and discover new places. I also enjoy reading and going shopping in my spare time. I love working as part of a team and am passionate about providing a positive and supportive learning environment for all pupils with all learning needs. I have really enjoyed my first year working at BSB Sanlitun and I am looking forward to the next academic year and all of the exciting opportunities it may bring!
