She has a BA in Medieval and Modern History from the University of Birmingham and has broadened her repertoire to include teaching Politics, PSHE and some German.  Mrs Griffiths has broad pastoral experience within Stafford Grammar School, having been a Sixth Form Tutor, Deputy Head of House and a mentor for pupils who need additional support.  She is passionate about developing the tutorial programme and the PSHE and Careers curriculum in a way enables every pupil to achieve their best and appreciate life.  Outside of school, Mrs Griffiths enjoys exercising and spending time with her family.  She also enjoys researching her Family Tree, having been inspired by ‘Who do you think you are?’, but has been disappointed not to have found any royal connections so far!
