Ms Nicholson

Head of Faculty for Maths

My name is Gemma Nicholson and I'm the Head of Maths here at Leventhorpe. This is my third year here after moving from a school in Bishop's Stortford, and previous to that I worked in the British School of Milan, a national school in Abu Dhabi, and a state school in Northwest London.

I'm not from Hertfordshire originally and I moved a lot when I was in school, sitting my GCSEs and A Levels at the British School of Brussels, Belgium.

I studied Sports Engineering at Loughborough University and then after spending a year travelling, I decided to try teaching. And I absolutely loved it from day one.

I'm very passionate about Maths, but I also love sport too and I play a lot of tennis outside of school where I have managed to be Hertford's ladies singles and doubles champion for two years.

We have a fantastic faculty here in Maths which is going from strength to strength, and my role is to manage it - that being staff, curriculum, behaviour, communication - to ensure that students are receiving the best Maths education they can.
