Abbie studied for a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and English Literature at The University of Wales, Aberystwyth. She soon realised that a career teaching Art was what she wanted to pursue and began the Graduate Teacher Programme in September 2008…at Wrekin College! Having worked at other schools in Telford and Shrewsbury after her GTP year, Abbie returned to Wrekin as a permanent member of the Art Department in September 2012. As well as teaching all year groups, Abbie is a tutor in Lancaster Girls. She is also very much involved in the school activities programme, is in charge of the Charities Committee and helps to run the body of Peer Listeners.
Out of school, Abbie lives in Nesscliffe with her husband Jamie and scruffy dog Craig. Of course Art is a huge passion of hers, her other interests include horse riding, musical theatre and singing in her all-girl band!
Abbie will be on maternity leave from September 1 2017 until June 2018.
