RUISLIP, MIDDLESEX

Helen is an exceptional Head of Drama at her school, and thanks to her energy and enthusiasm, the

variety and quality of productions that she orchestrates are no less than phenomenal. Students’ results

both at GCSE and A level are excellent and reflect students’ talent and hard work as well as Helen’s

aspirations for all her students to achieve the highest possible results. She has applied for and gained

Gold Arts Mark for the school, organised participation in the Schools Shakespeare Festival and, as if this was not enough, she has continued her own professional development by successfully

completing her Masters in Teaching.
