I have been fortunate enough to join the Lanesend team this year having spent my teaching career in secondary school. I have taught English and Classical Civilisation and relish the opportunity to teach Maths and Science and the whole diverse spectrum of subjects that the school offers. However, my love will always be literature having studied it a Cambridge University and I hope to pass that passion on to the students, as reading and writing are so fundamentally important to a child’s education and their understanding of the world. I am new to the island and have been so lucky to have put my roots down in Cowes and to have joined such a warm, friendly and inclusive community to which this school seems to be at the heart.
