Tell us a little bit about yourself and your role at Langley. 

I want to embed myself as much as I can in the day-to-day life at Langley.  I joined the CCF Army section and run the shooting team at Bisley, I can run short-range rifle ranges, and I can teach weapon handling skills.  I help run the DoE Bronze and Silver awards. This year we ran the CyberFirst for Girls competition – run by GCHQ.  We also ran the BEBRAS computational thinking challenges – that led to our entering the Oxford University Computing Challenge. We are building a team to enter the VEX robotics competitions.

What do you enjoy most about your role at Langley?

I enjoy the enhanced role of a tutor – I am lucky enough to have the nicest bunch of tutees possible! I really enjoy programming and run programming clubs at lunch time.

Any hobbies/interests outside of school?

Recently started oil painting, I plan to complete a portrait of King Charles to present to the school.  I also have a motor bike I spend far too much time tinkering with in the garage!

A fun fact about yourself. 

I have jumped off a beach landing craft with the Royal Marines!
