   Alex Copson - Curriculum Lead



Jill Regan Kellet - Teacher of Food Technology

"I have been teaching at Kingswood Secondary Academy since September 2016. I have a first class honours degree from Nottingham University and a PGCE from the Open University. Prior to teaching, my career was diverse, from working with drosophila in the Genetics Department at Cambridge University to being a Forensic Photographer.

I am interested in all things Food related. In my spare time I can be found renovating an old narrow boat."

Sandra Mandziuk - Head of Year/Textiles Teacher/Art Teacher

"I have been working at Kingswood for many years now after previously working in an SEN school.  I trained at Worcester College and specialised in Textiles and Art with PE as a second subject area.

During my time here I have organised cross-curricular work involving large companies such as Levis and Mattel Toys alongside fashion shows to showcase work produced.  I have also been a Head of Year for a long time now, seeing a few year groups through from year 7 to year 11 which has been extremely rewarding.  I also enjoy playing hockey and now play for Kettering Ladies on a weekly basis".

Lisa Wray - Textiles Teacher/Art Teacher

"I have worked for Kingswood Secondary Academy since 2005.  I am lucky to teach Art, Textiles and Food. I love the creative aspect of my subjects and the inspiring students that I work with. Kingswood is a school with a real community feel which is why I am still here! "
