Helen Cooke

Head of Department: English
Finham Park School

I have experienced many professional opportunities and roles since I joined Finham Park School in 2001. I’ve been a TLR holder in English; second in department; Director of English and am currently enjoying the challenge of being an Assistant Head in charge of Teaching and Learning across the school. What keeps me here are my brilliant colleagues who are supportive and full of humour as well as providing me with daily inspiration for improving my own teaching. The students at Finham are also a joy to work with, so much talent, enthusiasm and personality; it’s never a boring day! Working as part of the MAT affords me the opportunity to work collaboratively with colleagues in different settings and broadens my professional experience. It’s a privilege to be part of the Finham family
