Introducing . . . Jessica Blunden, Head of English
We are delighted to welcome Jessica Blunden to JAGS as our new Head of English
Speaking of the new role, Jessica said: “I am delighted to join JAGS as the new Head of English.
“After graduating with a degree in English Literature from Durham University and MA in Magazine Journalism from City University, my first career was in copywriting and editing; however, after a few years, I realised how much I missed discussing literature on a daily basis and, drawn to its challenging
, fast-paced nature, joined the teaching profession. I have been thankful ever since then that I made the move!
“I come to JAGS from King’s College School, Wimbledon, where I was Deputy Head of English. I have been struck by how bright, inquisitive and dynamic JAGS students are: the passion with which my Year 12 A level set, for example, discusses Thomas Hardy’s poetry is truly invigorating, and a reminder about why I entered this profession.
“I am very much looking forward to getting to know more members of the JAGS community, both students and staff alike, in the term ahead.”
