I have been working at St James Prep since 2017, but in order for me to tell you about my true love for the school, the ethos and all the staff and pupils in it, let me take you back to the beginning.
After coming back from living in Paris, I moved to this part of London when I was 10. This was when I was first introduced to St James. I was fortunate enough to be a pupil of St James from Year 6 to Year 9, after which, my family and I moved to The Netherlands.
Having graduated from Early Years studies in 2017 I joined the Early Years team and spent 2 wonderful years teaching in the lovely Reception class. I was massively inspired by the teaching which led me to pursue my PGCE at UCL and today I am the Nursery Teacher at St James Prep.
Fun fact about me: during one of my St James summer holidays I cycled 400km from London to The Hague in the Netherlands!
What attracted you to St James?
The people, the staff, the pupils, the parents all forming a wonderful community that inspire me to be creative and come to the classroom everyday with the energy and enthusiasm that the children and I thrive off.
What makes a St James education stand out?
A St James education stands out for its ambition to deliver the best education that is adapted and tailored to the needs of the children. With its holistic teaching approach, we aim to deliver the curriculum in an inspiring way and provide the children with opportunities to develop personally, socially, and emotionally.
What strikes you about St James pupils?
The children are wonderful and bring so much joy and laughter to the classroom every day. They are always a great reminder to live in the present and enjoy every moment.
