Cherry Hayter is a very able and experienced member of the Heritage English teaching team. A qualified primary school teacher, she also holds the RSA Diploma for TEFL and the British Dyslexia Association Diploma.
Cherry began her career as a TEFL teacher a year after qualifying from Middlesex University. She went to Switzerland to work as an English teacher, initially for the Inlingua Group in Berne, teaching mainly students from the various embassies and banks, before moving on to the commercial department of the Feusi Reudi Gymnasium. During the 10 years she spent in this beautiful city, she learnt German and Swiss German and developed a lifelong passion for skiing and the mountains.
Eventually, however, the lure of the sea drew her back to the UK and Lymington and for the next three years she worked in the Special English department of The Anglo Continental School in Bournemouth, before leaving to start her own language school in the New Forest.
Fifteen years ago Cherry returned to mainstream teaching, teaching English at a local private school and running the Special Needs Department for children with literacy difficulties or for whom English was not their first language. During this time she also worked as language teacher for a small summer school specialising in 1:1 tuition
Cherry is a valuable member of the Heritage team and teaches learners of all ages. She has two sons, both now living away from home, who share her passion for skiing and sailing. She is a member of Lymington Twinning Society and the Lymington Town Sailing Club and loves both the sea and the forest.
