Gemma Newton

Course Director

Gemma started her time at Sedbergh ISS as a TEFL teacher in 2013, after teaching in other British summer schools and spending a year teaching English in Poland. She then spent some years teaching English in Madrid, where she took her Delta (diploma for English teaching). She became Director of Studies and then Course Director for ISS and has become a familiar face for returning students.



Nick Giraud

Operations Director

Nick is a former Sedbergh pupil himself (Evans house), so he knows all there is to know about being a student at Sedbergh School. He has been a member of the Activities team for a number of years, and last year became Operations Director. He continues in this role for 2020, and is very excited to introduce the students to all of the exciting opportunities on offer this summer.
