Jemma Savillewood - Assistant Housemistress
Jemma started at St Swithun’s in 2010 in the chemistry department but after taking two years off with her little girl (now aged 6), in 2013, came back and joined the biology department.
"I occasionally dip my toe into teaching a bit of chemistry again! My degree was in medicine, so I like teaching in both areas - particularly things which students find really complicated, as I like thinking up ways to make the complex fun and simple to understand.
In 2016 I completed a psychology masters with a focus on memory in learning, and I use this in my teaching to help my students remember things for their exams!
When I’m not at work, I love baking and cooking with my little girl, and I now share this love at school by helping with cake decorating club and organising biology bake off.
I am really enjoying being the assistant housemistress of Mowbray, whether it be donning my pink t shirt and cheering the girls on the lax pitch or covering them all in lurid pink glitter for house song - they are a fabulous house of incredibly kind and motivated girls and it is great fun to be a part of it".
