Gemma Buchanan - Assistant Headteacher / Teacher and Learning

Gemma Buchanan

 I studied English at the University of Sussex and trained to teach at the University of Brighton.

Having been at Thomas Bennett since 2007, I have had several roles in the school but since 2013 have been an Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Teaching and Learning and I am also a member of the English department. 

Working at Thomas Bennett has been incredibly rewarding and exciting for me; the school’s inclusive and supportive ethos is infectious and I genuinely cannot imagine working with a more talented body of staff or a more enthusiastic group of students.  I am passionate about students achieving the best results at the end of their time at Thomas Bennett but also that they enjoy school and their lessons throughout years 7 to 13.
