Mrs K Cotton, Deputy Head Seniors
We are pleased to welcome Mrs Cotton who has joined us at St Augustine’s Priory this Summer Term as Deputy Head, Seniors while Mrs Collins is on maternity leave and look forward to her being with us until April 2017. Mrs Cotton joins us from St Catherine’s School in Twickenham where she was Head of Key Stage 4. After taking her B.A. in German and French at King’s College, London she studied for her PGCE at Homerton College, Cambridge and has also achieved an M.A. in Education Management at King’s College, London.
Mrs Cotton is bilingual in German and English, having grown up in Germany, and now lives with her family in Kingston-upon-Thames. She is a keen cook and is also a talented singer; at the moment she is studying for her ABRSM Diploma in Singing and is looking forward to contributing to the musical life of St Augustine’s Priory.
We asked Mrs Cotton what had attracted her to working at St Augustine’s Priory. She responded:
‘I am looking forward to taking on the challenge of an existing role. The Catholic nature of St Augustine’s Priory held a great appeal for me and the way this is reflected in the teaching life of the school, its life of prayer and reflection and the way everyone treats everyone else – a reflection of the gospel values.
I am really looking forward to getting to know the girls and staff and becoming involved in music and also Zumba!’
We wish Mrs Cotton the very best for her time here.
