I joined Harlington Upper School in September 2008 as a Science teacher after a career in Scientific Research, my last job was working on a malaria control programme at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The Science Department is a fantastic, supportive and encouraging place to work and in Spring 2010 I took on the job of Head of Key Stage 5 Biology while a colleague was on maternity leave. I always enjoyed being a form tutor and when there was an opportunity to become a House Leader I jumped at the chance. I was Europa House Leader from September 2011 to May 2017 and have now taken on the role of Head of Year.
My days are busy, challenging and rewarding, I enjoy working with the students and their families. I know that the Pastoral care that we give our students here at Harlington is second to none and this is due to a very hardworking team of support and intervention staff.
My aim is to improve the attainment of all our students by supporting them throughout their time with us, sending them onto the next stage in their lives as confident, responsible young people.
