Miss Nicola Widgery, Teacher of History

Miss Widgery grew up on the Isle of Wight, attending Medina High School to complete her GCSEs. She went on to complete A-Levels in History, Law and English Literature and Language before studying for a BA (Hons) in History at the University of Reading. She graduated with a high 2:1 before working for a year in a local primary school. After this, she moved on to study for her PGCE in Secondary History at the University of Exeter, qualifying as an ‘Outstanding’ teacher.

Miss Widgery adores the Isle of Wight and is looking forward to being settled back here permanently. In her spare time she enjoys kayaking, swimming and walking on the beach. She also enjoys watching football and athletics, playing squash, reading fiction, and being in the company of family and friends.

Miss Widgery’s goals…

I want to instil a love of history within my pupils, sparking their enthusiasm and fostering their curiosity. I also have aspirations to try paddle boarding and continue exploring the Island as much as possible.

Pupil progress

Expectations of pupil progress

A progress measure identifies improvement in learning and therefore is a good measure of the impact an individual teacher has had on a pupil or class. Pupils are expected to make a minimum of 3 points’ progress in each subject each year. As part of teacher appraisals we will report on the average progress made by classes taught by each of our teachers. An average of three points is the expected progress measure. A progress measure of 4 points or more highlights good to outstanding teaching and learning. All progress measures at the Island Free School are taken from externally marked or moderated exams taken at the end of the year.
