Heather is passionate about both education and science, and completed a BSc. in Biology at Aberystwyth University before completing a PGCE in Science. She began her teaching career in science 17 years ago working mainly in the private sector before moving to a large boarding school in Suffolk where she taught Science with Biology to GCSE and A Level, and was responsible for assisting in the running of a Sixth Form girls boarding house.
Heather was able to further pursue her interest in the pastoral nurturing of young students when she and her husband took on the main boys boarding house at King's in Cambridgeshire. It was at King's that she was able to explore a different avenue of Science in the form of Psychology, where she taught and eventually headed up the Psychology department. Heather has also undertaken examining work for AQA.
She has worked at the College since August 2014, and is in Singapore with her husband Kevin Shaw (Director of Sport) and their three daughters.
