Miss Samantha Long

Sam attended Dane Court Grammar School in Broadstairs before graduating from the University of Nottingham where she was awarded a first class English studies degree.

Following this success, Sam went on to complete a PGCE in primary education where she worked in a very diverse school in an area of high social deprivation as well as spending some time in a school in China observing classrooms and sharing good practise with Chinese Student Teachers.

Sam then spent a year travelling throughout Asia, before joining a state primary school as a Year 6 teacher where she achieved promotion to Assistant Headteacher.

Sam finally joined the Gad’s Hill Senior Leadership Team as Head the Juniors during the coronavirus pandemic in Spring 2020.
