Joanne Lovatt

I was bought up in Staffordshire in the UK, and studied for my BSc (Hons) Chemistry at the University of Leicester. After graduation, I moved to the beautiful city of Bath to gain my teaching qualifications.
Over the course of my twenty year career, I have had the privilege of working in a variety of educational settings and have enjoyed leadership roles as a Head of Chemistry and as a SENCo.
My husband’s career bought our family to the US this summer and I am thrilled to be joining the amazing Learning Support team here at BISW.

Outside of school I enjoy being a busy soccer mum to my two children, running, mountain biking, and of course, travelling to see as much of the United States as possible.
