Miss S Morris 120 x 180

Miss Morris graduated from Staffordshire University with joint honours in History and Sociology. Her primary focus in becoming a teacher was to make a difference in the lives of young people through both academic and personal development. This has resulted in the successful transformation of the History department at the Academy, which has achieved record results in previous years. In addition to this, students have widened their cultural capital with visits abroad to Poland, Germany and Belgium. Miss Morris’ career has developed at Manchester Health Academy through a plethora of roles including the development of trainee teachers and those who are newly qualified to the profession, which has allowed her to develop new ideas and to continually support in the developmental and strategic view of the Academy.
