Rebecca spent her childhood in the North East of England and attended school in Northumberland, studying and playing a lot of sport, particularly hockey! She graduated from Liverpool University with a BA (hons) in Social and Economic History in 1999 and spent a few years working in Management for Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, before moving to a PGCE course to train as a Secondary History teacher.

Her first teaching job was at Bishop’s Stortford College teaching History and Games in the Junior school. She has huge experience in the boarding world as a Houseparent both at Felsted Prep School and more recently at Mount Kelly Prep, working with a number of international students. She is looking forward to supporting the students in her role as Head of Pastoral.
