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.

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.
