Ms Katherine Milne

Having studied for a Degree in English at the University of Durham, I began work as a teacher in Cheltenham in 2005, and have taught GCSE English Language, GCSE English Literature, and A Level English Literature, ever since.

I have worked in both a day and a boarding environment, and am currently a Housemaster to 65 day girls, as well as a Deputy Safeguarding Lead, and an Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity Lead, at my current school.

I am a very experienced sixth form tutor, and frequently guide pupils through the UCAS and higher education process.

I am also a huge hockey enthusiast, and manage the girls' 1st XI at school, with whom I have won numerous National medals.

Beyond work, I am devoted to my family, and my dogs. I enjoy hill walking, cookery and baking, and gardening.

Mrs Allison Selwyn
