Chloe Doherty – Assistant Headteacher
SAIntS is such a warm and welcoming school I was keen to know more people and give something back to the school and the opportunity of being on the Executive Committee was the perfect way to do this. I have taught drama in five schools across North London over the last 16 years. I’ve had a range of other roles in schools, many of them very challenging. I’m looking forward to building on these skills at SAIntS. My family and I have come to Malawi to explore a different way of life. I have a daughter at SAIntS.
