Julie Thomson

Head of English, Director of Studies, Year 6 Form Teacher 

When I originally came to Westbrook Hay School in 2001, it was to fill a short-term supply role. I had made the decision to leave teaching having become disheartened with paper-driven, shabbily-resourced schools, with shrinking playing fields and soaring class sizes. Westbrook Hay worked its magic on me and I was lucky enough to secure a full-time role, became part of this happy, successful school, and haven’t looked back.

I enjoyed working as a Year 4 Form Teacher for eight years, before moving to my current role as Head of English and Form Teacher to Year 6, which I simply love! I am, however, well aware that my feelings have a lot to do with the excellent attitudes and discipline of the pupils, the amazing team that I lead, my wider-school colleagues, the community in which the school is set and the support systems that the school has in place.

Westbrook Hay is an exceptional place in which to work and learn.
