Senior Leadership Team

I started my teaching career in Scotland. I attended the University of Edinburgh and on receiving my degree began life as a classroom teacher in Aberdeen. I then moved to London in 1998 and have since taught in six different primary schools across four different local authorities covering the full range from Nursery to year 6! Where does the time go?


I joined Grove Road Primary School in November 2014 and love being part of such a diverse school with such interesting and dynamic children. I am very passionate about helping children to do their very best and reach their goals in exciting and challenging ways. This enthusiasm for learning and achieving is still a big part of me and reminds that every day and through everyone we meet there is an opportunity to learn and grow.


I live in Laleham with my husband and two young children and whenever I have time to myself I enjoy running and reading.

Mr Formella

Assistant Head Teacher 


I joined Grove Road in 2017 as Assistant Headteacher. Previously I have worked in Ealing at a few different primary schools which have served a diverse range of pupils, families and communities which I have loved being a part of. I am local to the school, having lived in Hounslow or Richmond borough for most of my life and I can still walk, cycle or run to work in the morning!

I have a lot of hobbies and not enough time to do them! Mostly though, I love coming to school and working with the fantastic children at Grove Road. I am dedicated to making sure that everyone is happy and is working towards their full potential in our school.
