Kate Di Gregorio – teacher of English 

The school is an extremely cohesive community in which more experienced colleagues work tirelessly to ensure trainee teachers feel supported, valued and encouraged. Having left Hertswood Academy for six months to work abroad last year, I was delighted to return. It honestly feels like I never left! In my opinion, other schools pale in comparison; I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.
