She has responsibility for learning and teaching approaches across the Senior School, as well as staff professional learning. Claire is passionate about supporting the development of a community of learners in the school, where both staff and pupils model the attributes of an EA learner – collaborative, curious, creative, resilient and independent – and firmly believes that the effective use of technology is central to achieving this goal. Claire lives with her family in Edinburgh; her twin daughters are current EA pupils. In her spare time she enjoys travelling, cooking and walking.
