Ms Pauline Gradden
Deputy Head of Secondary
Bachelor of Law (University of Liverpool)
Pauline gained her teaching qualification through the Teach First program, a route into teaching aimed at highly qualified graduates with experience outside of teaching and a passion for addressing educational disadvantage in the classroom so that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Upon graduating from the program in 2009 as an English teacher, Pauline worked in several British schools and became Head of English in 2011, and a member of the Senior Leadership Team with whole school responsibilities in 2012, before joining BSKL in 2014. She believes that her experience as a curriculum leader, alongside managing whole school initiatives was invaluable in developing her leadership skills. Pauline is a keen traveller, who enjoys experiencing other cultures, especially the food!
