Barbara Lonergan started teaching at The Dragon School in Oxford. She then moved to St John’s College School in Cambridge before joining us at Port Regis in 2019. She feels passionately about the importance of English teaching as a means of empowering children, giving them the skills to become articulate, empathetic, and creative adults. She learned quite a bit about the subject whilst studying English and completing a PGCE at the University of Oxford, but has learned most from the children she teaches, and from observing her own children, who are both at Port Regis, learn to read and write.
