Harriet was insistent from a young age that she would pursue a career working with children. She graduated from the University of York with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Social Science, specialising in children and young people. Following this, she studied for her PGCE in Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, gaining QTS and Masters credits.
Harriet’s first teaching post was at St. James’ Junior School in Tunbridge Wells, where she was a Year 4 Class Teacher and Lower Key Stage 2 Maths Coordinator. In 2015, she made the exciting move to London and joined the teaching team at Thomas’s, Clapham. Over six valuable years, she taught in Year 3, 4 and 5 and took on various roles, including Head of Year 3 and Middle School Maths Lead.
In 2021, Harriet eagerly accepted a position on the Senior Leadership Team as Head of Maths and Data Analysis at Ripley Court. Her goal is to pass on her passion for Mathematics to the pupils through exploring mathematical concepts in the real world. Harriet works with the Director of Studies, recording pupil data and undertaking analyses to encourage all children to reach their potential. Including this, she is a Year 5 Form Tutor and supports various additional roles on the Senior Leadership Team.
In the school holidays, Harriet loves travelling to new places, whether in this country or abroad. She also enjoys trips to the theatre and relaxing country walks. Lockdown turned her into an avid baker, and she’s now the first point of call for family birthday cakes!
