Senior Leadership Team



Mrs Jessica Pearson


 My hobby is singing in a choir called Di Voci, which has given me the opportunity to perform around the country and Europe in some amazing spaces.  I also love to knit – you might spot me wearing one of my creations!

I have been teaching for 27 years, ten of which have been at St. Monica’s. During my time at St. Monica’s, I have thoroughly enjoyed working in an atmosphere in which the Catholic faith is lived and children flourish. Away from school, I love to spend time with my family and friends.
