Gillian joined RBCS in September 2016, having taught in the state and independent sector, at home and in the USA. She studied Geology as an undergraduate and achieved a First Class Honours degree, followed by a Masters in Palynology. Her qualifications initially took her into the oil industry, where she was a Biostratigrapher, before embarking on her career in teaching.
Gillian has a passion for travel and always seeks out geologically significant locations for holidays. Being married to a geologist and having two children keen on climbing, it is never a hard sell when planning the next adventure. Gillian also umpires netball, coaches a team at RBCS and runs in her spare time, enjoying nothing more than 10K road races around the home counties on the weekend.
