    Deputy Head of Secondary

    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 & Teacher of Mathematics

    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.

    Assistant Head of Secondary (Sixth Form)

    Andrew Hallas

    After completing my PGCE at the University of Exeter I started my teaching career on the beautiful Isle of Wight in September 2000.  I feel very fortunate that over fifteen years on, and three schools later, I am still in such a dynamic and exciting job where no single day is ever the same. There are no other words to describe teaching, other than it is a complete privilege.

    Head of English

    Claire Walsh

    I started my international teaching career by moving to Shanghai and setting up the English department in a brand new school. Two years later I moved to Hong Kong with the intention of staying for a one-year contract, however, almost 11 years later, having worked in 3 of the top 20 highest achieving schools in the country, and moving between the role of Head of English, University Guidance Counsellor and Pastoral Head of Senior School (and with three children in tow), I moved to join the dynamic team here at BSG.

    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.
