Inspired by her grandparent’s teaching careers, Catherine studied a BA (Hons) in Primary Education in Cardiff, graduating in 2008. Catherine has subsequently spent 13 years teaching primary years in Sussex, UK before moving to Singapore with her husband and two boys in 2021.
In 2013, Catherine successfully completed the Outstanding Teacher Program and implements the skills learnt to create higher performance levels within her classroom, through creative and innovative learning. Catherine is motivated to help instil Brighton College’s values of ‘Curiosity, Confidence and Kindness’ in all her pupil’s whilst emphasising the importance of tolerance, behaviour and attitude.
Catherine has a real love of the outdoors and helping to protect our environment. Through her teaching career, Catherine has been actively involved in running eco-projects and works to foster a love of nature and an active lifestyle in the children she teaches. Catherine is a keen sportswoman playing netball regularly and enjoys getting outside and making the most of Singapore’s year-round sunshine, swimming and running as often as possible.
Growing up and living in Sussex, Catherine knows Brighton and the surrounding area very well. Catherine and her family have enjoyed many happy times walking along the seafront and riding the roller coaster on Brighton Pier. Brighton will always hold a special place in her heart as she got engaged on Brighton beach in 2015!
