Miss F Verne, Teacher of Chemistry

Miss Frances Verne, who joins us in September as a teacher of Chemistry writes to tell us of her background in both theology and science:

‘I grew up in Ealing and am looking forward to returning home to teach at St Augustine’s Priory.  I have a BSc in Chemistry from Queen Elizabeth College, London and an MA in Pastoral Theology from the Cambridge Theological Federation.  I am presently Head of RE at Blanchelande College in Guernsey; but before that was Head of Science at Sacred Heart School in Norfolk where I lived in the holy village of Walsingham.  I have a book published under a pen name, called ‘Here am I: responding to God’s call.’

Pope Benedict wrote about the friendship between science and religion and I have loved teaching both.   In Guernsey I have taken up Scottish country dancing and enjoyed walking along the unspoilt coast and cliffs with my springer spaniel Abbie.  I look forward to meeting and working with the school community at St Augustine’s Priory.’

We look forward to meeting Miss Verne and welcoming her to St Augustine’s Priory.
