Gemma Card - Governor

Gemma started working at St Piers School as a Class Teacher in March 2021 and from September 2021, Gemma became the Phase Lead for 16 -19.  Gemma joined the Education Governing Body as School Staff Governor in October 2021. 

Before joining St Piers, Gemma worked for ten years in a Special Needs Secondary School in Inner London and two years in a large inner city comprehensive school.   During this time, Gemma created a special needs sixth form which focused on allowing students to develop life skills along with undertaking vocational courses, enterprise programmes and career development. The Vocational Education Curriculum allowed student progression from 14 -19 learning pathways to be ready to study further beyond their 16-19 education or gain employment through supported internships, apprentices, and traineeships, in connection with other organisations. The School and Sixth Form were graded Outstanding by Ofsted in February 2019.

Gemma was also part of a London Authority Preparing for Adulthood task force developing strategies across the borough to ensure students with special needs were aware of the support, employment and training options available to them beyond their post-19 education.
