Mrs Catherine Badesha


Mrs Catherine Badesha – I am very excited to be part of the UCPS community and to work with you all. I completed my degree and started teaching in 2009, in Hertfordshire before moving to the UAE in 2012 and teaching in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Whilst in Abu Dhabi, I was also the Head Of Year in an international all-through school. In 2018, I moved back and became Assistant Headteacher of a school in Luton before becoming a Deputy Headteacher in Stevenage.

During my 6 years abroad, I travelled to many amazing places and learnt so much about other cultures and got to experience different places. I am very lucky to have lots of friends around the world that I met whilst travelling.

I have a little daughter who keeps me on toes. My hobbies include photography,  crafting and decorating my home.

I am really looking forward to meeting you all and working hard to provide the very best for all the children.
Please do come and say hello when you see me around the school!
