She is joining this leading independent school from the City of London School for Girls where she has been since 2001.

Miss Sergeant also had a significant pastoral role as a House Coordinator for Years 3 to 13, which involved the vertical integration of the whole school. She has also held teaching positions at The Hall School, Wimbledon, London and at Howell"s Preparatory School in Denbigh, North Wales.
During her interview, Miss Sergeant set out a clear vision for the Bolton Girls' Junior School, where the pupils should not only be literate, numerate and computer literate, but should also be encouraged to grow socially, morally, spiritually and culturally in order to achieve their full potential.
Miss Sergeant has a BSc (Hons) in Medical Sciences from the University of Leeds and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Homerton College, Cambridge. She is a Member of the Association for Science Education and the Royal Institute of Great Britain and has been a World Challenge Expedition School Leader whilst at the City of London School.
