I took my degree in Classics before qualifying as a lawyer and spending seven years at the criminal bar. Having decided that there was something to be gained from keeping more salubrious company, I joined the Barnes team in 2014 as a trainee and have taught in Year 5 and Year 6. In 2016, I became the staff governor. On Friday evenings, I leave school to start my weekend job, looking after my three children, Martha, Otto and Audrey. In my spare time, I enjoy running, swimming and buying books which I will endeavour to read before retirement.
