Year 6 Leader
Vanessa joins us from Dulwich College Suzhou in China, where she taught for two years. There she was the Head of Topic Learning in the Junior School, Head of Year 6 and a member of the Junior School Leadership Team. Vanessa graduated in 2011 from the University of Nottingham with a degree in Law. In 2013, she completed a postgraduate degree in primary education with qualified teacher status at University of Greenwich and began teaching in her home city. Vanessa moved to Valencia, Spain in 2014 to teach at a British school. Leading literacy is a passion: she likes to encourage children to explore the depths of their imagination and express themselves not just through writing, but also through speaking and drama. Vanessa also enjoys inquiry-based learning where children are instilled with lifelong skills, such as being resourceful, resilient and reflective. Some of her hobbies include travelling, drama, dancing, netball and enjoying long walks with her little dog.
