Miss Hayley Davies
STEM Leader - Computer Science
I graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a degree in Web Systems Design before studying to become a Computer Science Teacher. Throughout my school, college and university years, I noticed a very low percentage of females taking the subject compared to males. For my teaching year dissertation, I under took research into reasons why Computer Science is a subject girls don’t tend to choose and thrive in. I found that just being a good role model in this subject area can have a huge impact, and that is what I aspire to be to all students at Northampton Academy.
In my spare time I like to bake cakes and get creative with different crafts, from making candles to up-cycling furniture and I am currently learning new skills in the art of pyrography.
