"It continues to be both an honour and a privilege to lead the English department at Moulsham High School.

I consider myself truly fortunate to lead a team of highly committed professionals and to work with children whose outlook on the world is inspirational.  Collectively, together with parents, we hold great aspirations for our students' futures.

We strive to ensure that every single child attains academic excellence commensurate with his/her ability and leaves our classrooms with a lifelong love of the written and spoken word."
