Peter Hills with St Mary's & St Paul's




Miss Burness


What is your educational background?

I studied for a BA in International Development from the University of Liverpool. After working overseas for a few years I discovered my passion for teaching and came back to undertake a PGCE from Goldsmiths University. I also have a Certificate of Professional Development in PSHE Education. 

What skills and talents do you bring to Peter Hills?

I've been interested in geography, history and global issues since I was at school and I love to share these interests with the children in my class. I have a broad understanding of the curriculum and my favourite part of my job is helping other teachers to deepen children's learning.

 When you’re not at school what do you enjoy doing?

I am known to pick up a new hobby every six months or so- most recently it has been life drawing! Who knows what it will be next year!
