Year 1​


Mrs Garner

Hello, I am Mrs Garner. I have been a part of the Highwood community for a number of years as a parent, HLTA and now a teacher. I have been a qualified teacher since 2004 and love the variety that comes with meeting and working with new children. Music has always been a real interest and passion of mine and I enjoy being able to incorporate singing into school life. Outside of school you’ll find me out walking in the fresh air and spending time with my family. The beach is my favourite place to be!


Mrs Gill

Hello, my name is Mrs Gill and I am excited to join the Highwood Team! I have 17 years teaching experience in Early Years and Key Stage 1. My aim is to create a secure and welcoming environment where children feel happy and excited to learn. I am creative by nature and particularly enjoy teaching Art, History and English.

I love animals and nature and therefore enjoy spending time outside and visiting places with my family. My passion for nature means that I am interested in preserving the environment, finding ways to be sustainable and encouraging the children I teach to do the same. In my spare time I love cooking, gardening and reading!

Miss Hughes

Hello everybody! My name is Miss Hughes and I am very excited to be part of the Highwood team. I love allowing children to be creative and imaginative and incorporate this throughout the school day and I look forward to helping children develop their love of learning and exploring what the world has to offer. Outside of school, you will often find me painting or making amigurumi – anything crafty is fun to me.
