    Deputy Head of Secondary & Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages

    Sarah Newton

    I am delighted to be joining BSG in August 2018 as the deputy head of secondary. I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a BA in French and Business Studies, followed by a brief period training as a chartered accountant. I quickly realised that accountancy was not for me, and that my true calling was in teaching, with the opportunity to inspire, shape and develop young minds. I subsequently completed my PGCE in French and German at Manchester Metropolitan University.

    Assistant Head of Secondary (Sixth Form)

    Natasha Wildy

    I came in to teaching 13 years ago after a period of career sole searching. Prior to this I was an assistant project engineer for Exxon, refitting oil tankers. I was also heavily involved with thermodynamics for Corus in the manufacture of steel. Coming from an engineering background my approach is to relate mathematics to real life situations so that my students can see practical applications to what they learn.

    I began my teaching career ten years ago, via the Teach First programme in Birmingham, where I also completed my Masters in Educational Leadership, conducting action research into Gifted and Talented provision, as the school’s Aim Higher coordinator. I then moved to London, where I was a Leader of Learning, planning and delivering Initial Teacher Training for new teachers in the Croydon Hub. Since then, I’ve spent the last three years in a bright and colourful international setting, teaching in Thailand! Here, I was fortunate to work with wonderful students, developing my pastoral skills, as Head of Year 8 and then Year 9.

    I read law at university and graduated in 2005. During my degree, I completed a short placement teaching Mathematics and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mathematics is a subject of immense beauty that also rewards effort and perseverance; I feel very privileged to be able to work with students in this subject day in and day out. I qualified as a teacher in 2007 and worked in schools across Manchester and Cumbria in the UK.

    Teacher of Mathematics

    I graduated with a degree in chemical engineering but my first job after graduating was working in a bank. Whilst still in the banking industry, I had a growing desire to do something that would improve the life chances of young people. In August 2005, I took the ‘leap of faith’ and moved from London to Birmingham to start my teacher training.
