Megan joined Newhaven College in 2016 as Head of English and in 2017 took on the broader role of Director of Curriculum. She is particularly concerned that our ongoing work on teaching and learning is meaningful, gratifying and effective, and that it is focused on measurable progress for all students. To this end, Megan will ensure that our work is based on sound educational theory developed from reputable research.
