Fresh from completing a BA (Hons) Degree in English and Drama at the University of Birmingham, and a PGCE at the University of Bath, I joined St Joseph’s in 2009: the year the College announced its change to co-education. Initially joining the English Department, after a year as Head of Year 10 in 2011, I took on the role of Head of Sixth Form in 2012. Excited to be part of the school’s development over the past decade, I have continued to promote the growth of opportunities available to Sixth Form students, including the introduction of Peer Mentoring, Social Outreach, Enrichment, and the Sixth Form Ball.
My dog, Scout, is famous in the Sixth Form for being part of every assembly, and for being named after the protagonist in one of my favourite novels (can you guess which?). In my spare time I read all sorts of literature (as you might expect from an English teacher!) and in recent years I have discovered a love of gardening. I bake a mean Victoria sponge, enjoy going to the theatre, and am a stalwart member of the College Chamber Choir and Wind Band.
