Head of House
I am an extremely proud Head of Hawking as I have the pleasure of working with a kind, caring and hard-working community of students.
Our House ethos is based around kindness, as there is no better quality to be remembered for.
I am inspired every day by the varying personalities I work with and the reason I joined this profession was because I was inspired by my PE teacher when I was at school.
I was very lucky to have a good education where I achieved 10 GCSE’s and was elected Head Girl in my final year. I then studied at Peter Symonds College in Winchester where I gained 2 A Levels in English Language, Art and Design and Sports Studies. I continued to read Sports Studies at the University of Chichester and carried on studying to achieve a PGCE.
I worked at a school in Southampton for the first three years of my career and then moved to Chichester High School where I have loved every minute of teaching here. My passion for education led me to study a Masters Degree in Education and I hope to continue this path by studying for a PhD in Education.
I love being a House Leader and enjoy every day working with such lovely students.
Our Hawking House Champion is Mr McLagan
I feel very privileged to be Hawking house Champion and working as a PE teacher at the High School. I hold a BA (Hons) in Physical Education and Sports Coaching and PGCE which were both attained at the University of Chichester.
