Mrs Pia Longman - Interim Executive Headteacher
I combine my role as head of St Jude's with running Peter Hills with St Mary's and St Paul's in Rotherhithe.
What is your educational background?
I attended the University of South Australia where a completed a degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Psychology. After making the move to London and embarking on my teaching career seven years ago I then completed the QTS qualification through South Bank University.
What skills and talents do you bring to St Jude's
My life before teaching was surrounded by all things fitness. I have experience working as a coach and personal trainer and love nothing better than leaving the office occasionally and dusting off the trainers to teach PE.
When you’re not at school what do you enjoy doing?
Although my thrill seeking days are over I still have a passion for riding motorbikes and adventure. When the weather doesn’t permit my adventurous side I am a budding DIY enthusiast (although my projects usually result in more problems that I started with).
