Amy Hicks

Year 6 Class Teacher, 6AH (Full Time)

Amy graduated with an MA at the University of Kent and went on to complete a CELTA in Sevilla, Spain, after which she taught English in the UK, Spain and later in Daegu, South Korea. Having really enjoyed teaching English, Amy went on to study a PGCE in primary teaching in her home city of Portsmouth.

 

Throughout her training, Amy gained experience in upper and lower KS2 and qualified with Master’s credits. Amy went on to teach in a primary school in south-east England, and internationally at Seoul Foreign British School. 

Amy is particularly interested in encouraging children to explore the importance of global citizenship. Using UN Sustainable Development Goals, she has been able to develop ways for children to recognise and celebrate diversity, understand how we are all connected and challenge the children to think about changes they can effect in their own community. 

When she's not in the classroom, Amy enjoys dancing (particularly salsa!), listening to all kinds of live music, hiking and she also loves gardening. As well as this, Amy plays the alto saxophone but only when no one is listening.
