Physical and Creative Arts

I am very fortunate to have been at The Taunton Academy on its evolving journey since it first opened. I began teaching in Bristol in the year 2000 which was an amazing and rewarding experience, before moving to Taunton in 2002 to become second in department. I have taught most subjects within the Design Technology suite, which has included Textiles, Food, Catering, Manufacturing and Resistant Materials. I became Head of Department in 2004 and have never looked back since. I have recently been appointed Head of Faculty – Physical and Creative Arts, a role I am thrilled to be tasked with.

Prior to teaching I studied Fashion design at college and was extremely lucky to showcase my designs at The Graduate Fashion show in London in 1994. I was selected as one of the top 28 students in the UK out of 509 showing their work that year; it was a brilliant experience. I went on to run my own small fashion business making bespoke clothes for clients before deciding to share my skills by training to be a teacher.

I am a passionate teacher that believes in making a difference, working with all students to enable them to become independent, creative, lifelong learners whilst equipping them for adult life. Staff and students make working at The Taunton Academy a really rewarding job and one I look forward to everyday.
