I am very pleased to be a new member of the governing body at The Berkeley Academy. I have been a secondary school teacher for 9 years and have witnessed first hand the impact a strong primary education can have on outcomes for children. I have two boys one of whom is currently in year 1 and the other will start reception in 2021 having spent two years at the Berkeley Nursery. I have a keen interest in how schools can nurture and develop students holistically as well as the importance of a knowledge-rich and challenging curriculum. I hope to help the continual growth and development of an already fantastic school.
