Ms Tara Shanahan


English Teacher & University Counsellor

BA Joint Hons English Studies and Classical Civilisation, The University of Nottingham

PGCE from the Institute of Education (UCL)

Since completing her PGCE at the Institute of Education (UCL) in 2011, Tara has taught in two London schools, the latter of which was rated 'Outstanding' by OFSTED. In both schools, she held the role of Key Stage 5 Co-ordinator, which involved overseeing the teaching and assessment of English at A Level within the English Department. 

In her free time, Tara enjoys arts and crafts, reading and going to the theatre. 

She is thoroughly looking forward to this new stage in her career at BSKL and all the challenges and rewards that teaching in a new country will offer.
