Sarah Mulligan - Head of English
I have always loved stories and the different ways they can be told. In my early twenties I worked in two theatres in the West End and was lucky enough to see many plays and musicals during my time in London. I love to read, so a degree in English Literature was the perfect choice for me.
I have been an English Teacher for 12 years. I trained at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School and then moved on to The Priory Academy LSST. Before this I worked as a Teaching Assistant at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School, where I taught small literacy withdrawal groups. I loved my work as a TA, and working in a supportive capacity with small groups was something I missed when I moved to teaching whole classes. When the opportunity arose to teach at Pilgrim, I jumped at the chance. I have been at Pilgrim since 2020, and I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else! The students and staff are the most inspiring group of people I have ever met, and I feel lucky to work here. 2023-24 will be my first as Head of English and I am excited to work with the team to make English fun and accessible for every student.
