Jane has taught since 1990, in a range of state primary schools and also in teacher education at York St.John University. She met Mark studying for a Master’s degree in 1995, and they discovered that they shared a faith in the same God and a love for education. In 2006 they moved to Cambodia to work in a school for missionary kids, where they stayed for ten years to educate children from thirty-one nationalities. Jane was principal of the primary school and in charge of special needs for 3 - 18-year-olds, Mark developed a thriving high school growing from 15 to 200 students.
Jane is passionate about holistic education, with God in the centre. School is about so much more than academics, and whilst these are important, education should be in partnership with parents to develop children socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Bradford Christian School, where jane is now Head, is a place where this happens. It is a privilege to be able to pray for and with children, to teach them that they are precious and valued by God. Jane loves Jesus, loves children and loves teaching, and enjoys working with a group of people who do the same. Last year she completed the National Award for SENCos, a post-graduate certificate in Special Educational Needs, which she is using in her job at BCS.
