About our staff

Head of department  Mr M A Hamill

AfterLeavingSchool/ sixth form way back in 1998 I decided to go to university and study sports science to continue and develop my interest in sport. After successfully completing my degree, I did my teacher training in schools inNorth Walesand the Wirral.

In 2002 I started my first teaching position atRhylHigh Schooland I’ve been here ever since! As well as being head of department I also lead the fantastic Foryd House.

My main interests are Football,Rugbyand Golf, when I get the chance!

I support the mighty Liverpool (the better half ofLiverpool) so there is always plenty of discussion with Mr B Roberts, who is of course – a bitter blue.

Miss K M Jones

Following my GCSEs and A Levels I studied atEdgeHillUniversityand gained a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science graduating in 2000. I continued my studies and completed a PGCE in Physical Education in 2001.

Over the summer holidays for several years I worked for Denbighshire County Council running play schemes where I drove a minibus full of sports kit round villages delivering games and activities to children aged 5-16, I loved this job!!

I started my first teaching job aRhylHigh Schoolin 2001, which I still love 11 years on!!

My life outside of school is busy as I have three sons but I find time to play football for Denbigh Ladies. I enjoy running, the odd round of golf, horse riding, watching movies and cooking…..and eating chocolate!! 😉
