Anna is a Big 6 form tutor and teaches Big 6 English, maths, history, games and PSHE.

As Head of Learning Support in the Junior school, Anna is responsible for the children who have a special educational need, English as additional language, gifted and talented learners and any children who require further learning support to reach their potential.

She also has an OPAL teaching commitment for OPAL learners in year 5 and big 6.

Anna also runs an after school Philosophy club and lunchtime puzzle club for students in the junior school.

Anna began her career in teaching at Oak Meadow Primary School in Wolverhampton, a state run primary school where she completed both her GTP year and NQT year. Before this Anna worked for Wolverhampton Local Authority as a Social Inclusion Pupils Support worker, supporting children across Wolverhampton who had social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. In the past, she also worked as a respite carer, supporting children with special needs during holidays and weekends.

Anna began working at Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School in 2011 when the junior school was opened. She loves the challenge of teaching in the junior school as she is always finding new ideas to develop the learning of the pupils so that each individual can reach their potential.

“The opportunities which the school provide, both in the classroom and outside, offer all pupils a chance to try new challenges and discover more about themselves.

I enjoy teaching every lesson as the pupils are always eager to further their own learning through exploration and taking risks.”

Anna enjoys playing sports, particularly volleyball and netball. She has played for local volleyball team, Tettenhall Tigers, for more than 20 years.
