Mrs Milward became a teacher after completing a BSc (Hons) and an MA from Bournemouth University. She is a passionate advocate of all Humanities subjects and has a wealth of teaching and pastoral experience working in various independent and state schools. Most recently, she has worked at Talbot Heath in Bournemouth teaching Geography from Year 7 through to A Level, as well as History, PSHE and Religious Education. She also took responsibility for Pastoral and Academic Mentoring of students in the Senior School. Previous to this, she worked at St Peter’s School in Bournemouth teaching students from Year 7 up to Year 13 and held different roles as a Year Leader, Deputy Year Leader and Assistant SENCO as well as responsibility for Key Stage 3 Geography. She also has a wealth of experience taking students on fieldwork and residential school trips both within the UK and abroad, including skiing, watersports and Humanities-related trips.
Mrs Milward is a keen lifelong participant in sport, having been Captain of her Women’s Rowing Team at University and a ballet dancer as a child. She wholeheartedly believes in the wellbeing of children and teenagers and in creating an engaging and nurturing learning environment that supports young people and enables them to succeed in becoming kind, confident and reflective individuals.
Outside of work, Mrs Milward enjoys running (having completed her first half-marathon this year), and going on adventures with her husband (an Archaeologist) and her three children who all attend FSM.
