Mrs Simons began her marketing career at Exchange & Mart Magazine, before moving to work for Bournemouth University. She then moved to work for two marketing agencies working in the education space – with clients including the British Army, MoD, Dogs Trust, BHF, British Gas and Pearson. Mrs Simons then moved back to being ‘client side’, and began working at the University of Surrey as the Marketing Manager for the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

In 2015 she became Head of Marketing at Lewisham Southwark College in London. The role evolved to take on more teams, and she became Head of Student Recruitment and Marketing.

Mrs Simons joined FSM School in early 2019. Mrs Simons holds Member status with the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Mrs Simons is a big outdoors fan – and her favourite type of day out is either exploring the New Forest with toddler daughter and husband, or out on her kayak. Either that, or enjoying a good food festival!
