Humanities Teacher Appointed
Miss Emily Turner has been appointed as Humanities Teacher. Following her degree at the University of Southampton, Miss Turner trained to be a teacher with Ark schools before teaching at Wallington High School for Girls. She joins us from the Department for Education where she has been responsible for developing the evidence base for Initial Teacher Training policy schemes.
"Being part of a brand new school, in your local community, is an exceptional opportunity. I am thrilled to be joining Harris Academy Wimbledon as a Teacher of Humanities. Studying Humanities will encourage your children to ask questions about the world around them and interpret the world in different ways. Geography will enable students to explore diverse topics from tectonics to inequality while History will equip students with an understanding of the significant events in our past which will help them to make sense of current affairs. Both of these subjects are key in building students understanding of other cultures and societies and equipping students with the skills they will need to succeed in an increasingly globalised world. I have a passion for both of these subjects and I am excited for your children to enjoy exploring these subjects just as much as I will enjoy teaching them!"
