Assistant Headteacher Physical Education and Sports

[email protected]

Hello, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Assistant Headteacher of Physical Education and Sports. My teaching career started at Durham University where I completed my PGCE in Physical Education. I have worked across two schools in the UK where I have gained valuable experience in teaching GCSE and Btec Sport Level 2 and 3. I pride myself on being a reliable and professional member of a well-established team and work hard in order to achieve a set goal and show commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism in everything that I do.

In football, I was fortunate enough to represent England School Boys in the Centenary Shield, the opportunity to play a high standard of football has influenced my passion for developing young people and allowing them to experience pathways beyond school sport and Physical Education.

I am excited at what lies ahead for GFS as the school continues to grow and flourish over the next academic year.
