Miss Small joins the independent boarding and day school for pupils aged 11-18 following three years of teaching at a military secondary school in Cyprus. Prior to this she worked as Head of Catering, running the Food Technology and Catering Department, at King Alfred’s Academy in Oxfordshire for three years. Commenting on her new position, Miss Small says, “I am very much looking forward to teaching the pupils of King Edward’s where it is very apparent that a strong ethos exists in terms of educating and developing the whole person, as opposed to an over dependence on academic achievements alone. I have been really impressed by the keen sense of community that permeates throughout the School and am excited by the opportunity to extend the appeal of Food Technology following the recent changes in the curriculum. Pupils will be encouraged to examine the provenance of the food that we eat and to investigate the ethical decisions affecting food production. There will of course also be a significant emphasis on eating and cooking healthy foods and snacks and recognising the important role that food plays in our lives. The catering at the School is excellent and I am keen to establish a stronger link between the study of food technology and linking this with the day to day decisions being made by the on-site catering team.”
