Tell us a little about KYTOS

“The KYTOS Biology Enrichment Programme offers unparalleled opportunities to explore the subject beyond the classroom. Girls can develop their surgical skills in the Dissection Club, enhance the school environment in the Conservation Club and delve deeper into the fascinating world of forensic science and criminal investigation in the popular Forensics Club.”

And about the Guest Speaker programme

We’ve secured talks from a variety of distinguished professionals, including Sickle Cell specialist Professor Dame Elizabeth Anionwu, President of the Genetics Society Professor Laurence Hurst, and wildlife campaigner Virginia McKenna (to name just a few).

What do you most enjoy about your role?

“I’m able to help instil and develop a sense of wonder and curiosity about Biology in the girls I teach, using my medical background to bring a deeper understanding to certain topics covered in the syllabus. Leading the KYTOS sessions is definitely one aspect of my job I love doing!”

Describe your teaching style

“Creative and engaging with humour.”

Memorable moments?

“The first KYTOS Biology trip to Costa Rica for 30 of our younger girls – it was the adventure of a lifetime. Also, Sir David Attenborough writing to commend us for our work was quite the honour.”
