I received a bachelor's degree in Geography at the University of Birmingham and then went on to complete my Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Oxford. During my career, as Head of Geography and Head of a Year Group, I have been fortunate enough to gain experience in both academic and pastoral aspects of teaching.
I love to sing (much to my students’ amusement/embarrassment!), so I apologize now if you hear me around the hallways or in my classroom! I am also a keen skier, both recreationally and professionally, having raced for my University team. In my free time I like to play netball, go running, cycling, or to a yoga class – but I’m the kind of person who will basically try everything and anything!
