Head of Key Stage 3
"My name is Hannah Monk and I am the KS3 Leader at GEMS Founders School. This is my second year at GFS and I am thrilled to have taken on the KS3 role. In the UK I have a wealth of experience working in this area and as a dedicated practitioner I endeavor to ensure students have the tools to access a high quality curriculum, whereby they surpass their potential. In my last job role, I was also in charge of the transition between Year 6 and 7, which I feel is very important as students embark upon their KS3 journey towards picking their iGCSE options. I really look forward to supporting the journey for the students here at GFS as they progress and grow through my Key Stage. My subject specialism lies within PE, where I qualified in 2014 with a first class degree in BA (Hons) Physical Education with QTS. As well as teaching the fundamentals and life skills that fall under PE, living a healthy active lifestyle is a passion of mine and I always wish to influence others to have a similar mindset. In my own time, I play and coach netball and also enjoy to travel where I can learn and experience new cultures around the world."
