Mrs J Rodell-Jones - Assistant Principal: Quality of Education - Impact

I am originally from Cornwall but left to study a BA (Hons.) in Geography at Middlesex University at the age of 18. As part of the course I was able to combine my love of Geography with travelling and culture as I progressed through the degree course, and visited Tunisia, Holland, Jamaica and Australia. I studied for my PGCE at Nottingham University and qualified as a teacher at the age of 22. I was fortunate enough to spend time teaching in Roanoke, Virginia before starting my teaching career in Hertfordshire in 2005. I completed my Master’s Degree in 2007 with a focus on ‘coaching’. I am proud to say that I have been a teacher for more than 20 years. In that time, I have been a Head of Geography, Deputy Head of Humanities and a Leader of Sixth Form.
