English Language and English Literature, Head of Sixth Form
I have taught English for thirty years in a variety of schools. I am a graduate of Durham University, and am passionate about Literature, History and Linguistics. These all feed really well into my teaching! I have been delighted to join the staff at CHS – it’s the most rewarding job I have ever undertaken – the students are keen and engaged, and they inspire me with their thirst for knowledge. This year, I have been very pleased to have been made Head of Sixth Form, and love working with students in Levels 5 and 6 to help them with their studies at our school, university applications, and preparing them for life after A Levels.
My other great passion is animals – my husband and I rescue rabbits and guinea pigs; we also have an old cat, who is our baby. Besides my animals, I love baking, and make celebration cakes for people’s birthdays and weddings.
