Mrs Kat Simpson

Teacher of History, Head of Year 7

I’m in my eighth year of teaching History and Kents Hill Park is my third school since completing my teacher training.

My teaching career began in the private sector where I combined my History teaching with the role of a Boarding Housemistress. In this role, I was responsible for the education of 50 girls as well as supporting their pastoral needs. From this, I chose to focus on my passion for History and became a classroom teacher at a local school in Milton Keynes. I chose to teach History to promote the stories of the past to ensure that children have an understanding of what has happened before them. I am excited about the opportunities available at Kents Hill Park especially as I get to reprise my pastoral role by becoming a Head of Year.

When I am not at school, I enjoy going for long walks with my family, exploring new places and baking nice treats.
