Miss Carolyn Underhill: Post 16 Lead, Year 10 & 11 Progress Leader and Numeracy Co-ordinator


I have been at Grange Park for 8 years and started as a Learning Mentor, and was fortunate enough to complete my teacher training here. I am the Progress Leader for Key Stage 4 and also the Head of Maths which I also teach. I have had the pleasure of organising several extra curricular activities, trips and visits including a three day trip to Disney Land Paris, theatre trips and also the charity events that the school participate in such as Red Nose Day and Children in Need.


Working at Grange Park is a truly inspiring and wonderful opportunity, and I learn something new every day from our pupils.  I strongly believe that every pupil is an individual, so the way in which we teach and interact with them must be a personal experience. 


Outside of school I enjoy jigsaw puzzles and shopping. I am also a Disney aficionado, and love all things Mickey Mouse. I have two cats called Nala and Serabi and love travelling.


Miss Sarah Hume:  KS5 Progess Leader, Form Tutor & PE Teacher Wrotham


I am Sarah Hume, the Key stage 5 Progress Leader at Grange Park School. I graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University with a BA(Hons) in Dance Education, then went on to achieve a PGCE in Secondary Dance at Exeter University. I spent the first two years of my career teaching GCSE and A level Dance, to then training as a Maths teacher, eventually becoming Head of Department and Head of Year 9 and 10 in a mainstream secondary academy.


Since joining Grange Park School, I have finally found my true passion within education, which is shaping and enriching the lives of children with autism. I strongly believe a child that thrives in a school is a child who feels happy, supported and safe. Through creating a warm,  encouraging and nurturing atmosphere we can create confident, resilience and independent young adults in Key Stage 5, who will continue to strive for more and realise that their possibilities are endless.
