Welcome Miss Hart
We are pleased to welcome Miss Nikki Hart to St Gabriel’s, as maternity cover for Miss Pearmine. She is teaching in Year 6 and Year 4. She is enjoying getting to know the children via Teams video and has been impressed with their digital skills and positive attitudes to learning.
Miss Hart has always lived in the Newbury area, and first visited St Gabriel's many years ago on the sports pitch as a member of visiting netball and rounders teams.
Due to her love of sport, particularly lacrosse, the natural path for her was to follow her passion and qualify as a PE teacher. She spent four enjoyable years on the coast at Brighton University and achieved a first class honours degree.
Initially I began my career in a secondary school, but soon realised the enthusiasm of Junior School children was equally rewarding. It's been a strange start to life at St Gabriel's as remote teaching has not allowed me to meet the whole school community yet. However, I have received a very warm welcome from the pupils that I have taught online.

Outside of school, Miss Hart likes to keep fit and healthy by regular participation in the Newbury Parkrun or going on long bike rides in the country with her family.
