Rachael Ammari

BA (Hons), PGCE, MA

Head of School

I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE in primary education and a Master’s in education, both from the University of Sussex. I have taught in private and state schools in the UK and the US, so understand different curriculums within the primary school age group. I have a specialism in English as I graduated with a BA (Hons) in English Literature but have experience teaching every subject at primary school level.

Due to my experience and resources, I can teach a wide range of subjects, allowing your child to access a rich curriculum. I am also a Grade 7 pianist, so I offer piano lessons and encourage a passion for music in the children I teach.

I have a full DBS check from the UK and US and have references from local schools in Hove including Hove Junior School (Portland and Holland Road) and Benfield Primary School (Portslade).

The very limited number of pupils (maximum of 5 per class), allows for children to interact with their peers in a safe but consistent environment. It also allows for extra care and attention that would not be provided in a larger class.  

One of the most exciting parts of Hove Micro-school for me is the ability to design and adapt the curriculum around the needs and interests of the children. It’s a collaborative project and environment, where children benefit from expert teacher education and parents can input directly into their children’s learning. It offers a premier educational experience, customised to the needs of the child, whilst maintaining the invaluable social interaction of a small group of peers. It is a more comfortable learning environment; a blend of professional/family style education.
