Samuel Hirst

Originally from Bedfordshire, I completed my undergraduate studies at Newcastle University before my completing my postgraduate teaching qualification at London’s Institute of Education. After having spent several years teaching History, Politics and Geography at schools in London and Hertfordshire I am very excited about the prospect of teaching History at Park Lane.

In my role as a form tutor, I see it is a great opportunity to get to know the pupils on a more personal level, outside the restrictions of a subject lesson. I also use the time to get pupils thinking about current events and their role in the wider world.

I believe that history at school should be an engaging, exciting and rigorous subject. My aim as a history teacher is to create a classroom environment which is a place of debate, active discussion and enquiring minds.

One of my main interests is travel and exploring new cultures. Central Europe is an area of particular interest, with its rich history and customs. As a keen hiker, I aim to visit the beautiful lakes, forests and mountains of the Czech landscape. Finally, Prague is one of Europe’s great cities, so I am looking forward to discovering its past and its present!
