– I graduated as a teacher in 1998 having spent time working in London in the fitness industry. With a degree in Sports Science (BSc) and Secondary Science (B.Ed) I have a broad breadth of knowledge from a less traditional science background. I have worked in both the pastoral and curriculum systems in a variety of roles in very different environments. Having started my teaching career in Dorset, I then taught in the Cities of Portsmouth and Southampton before starting at the academy in 2014. I have also been fortunate enough to teach abroad in Dubai.
– Each school presents its own set of challenges however, the rewards in any school are the same. I enjoy fostering a love of science amongst the students and seeing that develop and then applied to whatever avenue those students choose. With scientific content underpinning our curriculum, application of that content and developing the skills of scientific enquiry drive the backbone of our science teaching at the academy. Our aim is to inspire and create the scientists of the future!
