Harriet Burford

Head of Year 3

I am Ms. Harriet and I am the Year 3 Head of Year at GEMS Metropole School. I have been at GEMS Metropole School since 2019.

After gaining a BA (Hons) degree in Primary Education at Edge Hill University in the UK, where I specialised in English, I began working at a mid-sized school in  Pontefract. I taught at this school for 5 years teaching across different year groups and most recently as the Key Stage 1 Leader. 

Over my career, I have spent time working in a variety of different educational settings such as a special educational needs school, a forest school in Sweden, a pupil referral unit, numerous nurseries and of course many primary schools.

I have led a variety of subjects including Computing, Religious Education, French and Enterprise studies. I completed my National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership at Leeds Beckett University in 2018. Since then, I have been working as Middle Leadership in England and at GEMS Metropole.

In the past, I have enjoyed working on cruise ships, at Disneyworld Florida and on a summer camp in America. These jobs gave me the opportunity to travel around the world and see many new places. I enjoy travelling so much because I love exploring and immersing myself in different cultures. 

I very much enjoy being a part of the GEMS Metropole family and I am looking forward to working alongside all my colleagues, the children and their parents in the new academic year.
