I have been a full-time teacher since completing my PGCE in 2008. I worked from 2011 to 2021 in independent girls' schools in London - first at Notting Hill & Ealing High School as Head of Physics and later Head of Science. While at NHEHS I progressed to Head of Sixth Form, a role I held from 2016 until 2020, before moving to Francis Holland School, Sloane Square as Deputy Head Pastoral. I am a highly experienced Physics teacher - particularly in relation to the IGCSE and A level specifications. I have prepared multiple students for success in the PAT who have ultimately gone on to take up places at Oxford in Physics and Engineering. Throughout my career I have worked extensively with students 1-1, both in school and outside as a private tutor.
As a recent Head of Sixth Form I have prepared hundreds of young people for university application, and I can advise on course choice, academic research, personal statement writing and interview technique.
As a member of senior leadership in consortium schools for five years, I have conducted dozens of 11+ interviews, and can advise on what independent schools are looking for in this process, as well as help to develop these qualities. As an ex-Head of Sixth Form, I am also an expert in the 16+ admissions process; I have recently supported students who gained places for 2022 at Magdalen College School and Cheltenham Ladies' College.
