New addition to the GD teaching team!

There’s a new addition to the Grace Dieu teaching team! Mrs Louise McCue joins the School to teach Year 4 pupils in September having travelled and taught across the world.

Mrs McCue studied Primary Education at Glasgow University, with a specialism in Environmental Studies and Physical Education, where she obtained her Bachelor of Education in Primary Education and a Diploma in Religious Studies. Over her career, she has enjoyed teaching in Scotland, Singapore, the Netherlands and Paris before arriving with her family in Leicestershire.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be starting my new adventure in Grace Dieu, where I am keen to join such an exceptional team led by Mrs Kewell,” says Louise. “With a passion for a creative curriculum and an inbuilt curiosity, I am looking forward to providing the children in my care with a stimulating environment in which to learn and the encouragement for them to strive to be the very best they can be, both emotionally and educationally. I firmly believe that there is a school for each and every child, where they can flourish and grow – this was certainly the case for my own two children who enjoyed the many benefits of Grace Dieu Manor School.”

“We are so incredibly fortunate that Mrs McCue will be joining us in September,” says Headmistress Mrs Kewell.  “She brings with her boundless enthusiasm, combined with expert teaching knowledge and vast experience – our pupils are very lucky to be able to go on their Year 4 learning journey with her. It really is a testament to Grace Dieu’s reputation that we continue to attract such highly qualified teachers to join the School, and of course, it is particularly wonderful that she knows and loves Grace Dieu as a former parent too.”

Louise can be found, at the weekends, cheering on her son in a myriad of sports as well as supporting the Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.  She is a firm believer that travel broadens the mind and as such loves meeting new people, exploring new cultures and learning new facts from her own travels. She also enjoys talking to fellow pet owners, whilst walking around the Leicestershire countryside with her black Lab, Hunter.
