Bio

I am a Head of Biology in a small, non-selective, independent secondary school in Jersey. I have had remarkable success over the past 5 years as Head of Biology  at GCSE and A level built upon the maintaining high expectations in lessons and engagement with the subject through co-curricular activities.

We are currently investing the DNA sequences found within the chloroplasts of daffodils. 

I represent Secondary Teachers on the British Ecological Society's Teaching and Learning Special Interest Group. 

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy hillwalking and rockclimbing. I have been fortunate to take part in mini-expeditions to Canada and the Alps. Maybe one day I will make it to the Himalaya...
