As Deputy Head, Mrs Kirk is responsible for the pastoral care of pupils at Pitsford School. She is a graduate of Sheffield and Exeter Universities and currently teaches Geography, English and the Extended Project Qualification. Mrs Kirk is passionate about providing pupils with a holistic education that allows them to develop their talents within and beyond the classroom. With twenty years in Public Schools, she brings a variety of experience to Pitsford as a Boarding Housemistress, a Captain in the CCF, EPQ coordinator and theatrical director and drama teacher. Mrs Kirk grew up in Zambia and Malawi and has lived and worked in Japan. Her aim is to share the best of that experience with our pupils and to foster in them a love of life-long learning, a sense of independence, a curiosity for the world in which they live and an understanding of what can be achieved with hard work and a positive attitude.
