Kavita Patel

Kavita read Genetics at Liverpool University before going on to the Institute of Education to study for her PGCE. Her experience spans state, independent and grammar schools, with 12 years at The Tiffin Girls’ School as Head of Years 8 to 11, Assistant Head of Sixth Form and UCAS Coordinator. Since joining Surbiton High School nine years ago, Kavita has held various roles in the Science Department as Head of Biology and Head of Science, before becoming an Assistant Principal and now Vice Principal.

When she’s not busy teaching Biology, looking after the development of staff, or spending time with her two children, she can often be found perusing antique fairs, knitting toys, growing vegetables or planning how to implement her next interior design project.
