Year 3

Mrs Hartgrove


Hello. I’m Mrs Hartgrove and this is my fourth year at Highwood. I taught in Year 3 for two years before going on maternity leave and had my little boy in November. I’m excited to be back in the classroom with Year 3. I enjoy all sports but especially running and netball. I’m looking forward to sharing lots of wonderful books with the children this year.

Dr Read

I have spent many years learning and one of my favourite expressions is that education is life-long. Whilst I was working on my doctorate, I was able to work with some fantastic children at lots of schools and I am so excited to be able to continue that journey at Highwood. I love sports, especially karate and taekwondo, and have taught karate to children for many years. I also love music and have played the guitar since I was at primary school.

Miss Bicheno

Hello, I’m Miss Bicheno and I’m really excited to be joining the team at Highwood this year. Before joining Highwood, I taught at schools in the UK, Spain and China. You might have guessed that I’m passionate about travelling and learning languages, so I’m looking forward to taking on the role of MFL lead in addition to teaching Year 3. I love encouraging children to be curious about the world around them. When I’m not at school, I enjoy doing things to stay active such as CrossFit and hiking, but I can also often be found reading or baking too.
