Mrs Maria Lewis

 Assistant Headteacher

Originally from South Wales, I graduated in Industrial Chemistry in 1990 then trained to be a teacher at Bath University. I initially taught at The Ridgeway School in Swindon then at St Laurence School in Bradford-on-Avon as Head of Chemistry. I was delighted to join Sheldon in 2000, originally as Head of Science before being promoted to Assistant Head in 2002.

Sheldon has fantastic facilities and respectful students and I am proud to be part of our strong community ethos. Amongst other things, my major role is to develop teaching and learning across the school. I am passionate about making sure that all pupils receive the very best education and I am constantly looking at ways for us to improve experiences both within the classroom and through extracurricular enrichment.  Learning happens best when pupils feel safe, happy and challenged and my commitment to their learning environment outside the classroom is as strong as it is to the quality of lessons.
