Deputy Housemistress - Tam

I am delighted to have joined Tam House as Deputy Housemistress this year. I have been a teacher for nearly 15 years, holding a variety of positions ranging between Head of History, Assistant Head of Sixth form, Oxbridge Coordinator, and Deputy Housemistress. I believe that boarding school can be extraordinary in elevating the lives of young people, giving them the chances to be creative, risk-taking, and resilient.

I studied History at the University of Nottingham, and completed my PGCE at UCL. I have since completed a Master’s Degree in Education in which I researched the extent to which the ability to question and make well-reasoned judgements is fostered within education. One of the most rewarding elements of my job in the ‘day-to-day’ is to talk to students, to find out what they think about the world, what questions they have, and what they are excited about – and being in a boarding environment is perfect for this!

I love to be outdoors and am enjoying mountain life a great deal. I enjoy all sports, particularly the way in which mindset is linked to physical achievement, and I am inspired by the opportunities that exist at this school for students to push themselves as far as they can. When I am not teaching or in House, I can usually be found somewhere on a mountain trail, either running, hiking, or skiing.
