Our Team

I started my working life in restaurants and public houses in London and then in the South West, running my own businesses.  After 12 years of this I changed career and completed my PGCE to become a science teacher (secondary). I have taught in a number of Plymouth secondary schools before moving across to work in Pupil Referral Units. I have an NPQH and am training to be an OFSTED inspector.  I love this job as our work makes a real difference to the life chances of the young people we work with.
