"Hello everyone, my name is Karen Hand and I am delighted to be a member of the Moss Hall Junior School Governing Body.


I have been teaching at The Compton School for the last 10 years and whilst I am a very keen scientist and love sharing my passion for Chemistry with students, I have also held a number of pastoral roles.


One highlight of my role has involved overseeing the transition of Year 6 students to our school. This involves visiting primary schools to meet the students and gather information from class teachers.


With the ever increasing number of Moss Hall students choosing to come to The Compton School, joining the governing body to further develop the strong links between our schools seemed like an excellent opportunity. I am looking forward to working with your all."
