Mr Collis- Hedgehogs (1C) Teacher, Yr1 Lead and Assistant Head

I really enjoy learning new languages and have lived in Germany, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. It was in these countries that I did several adrenalin sports like scuba diving, bungy jumping and I passed an exam to do a solo skydive 12,000 feet above a beautiful bay in Australia. Outside of school, I love to swim and I have completed the swim section of a triathlon with my brother and sister to raise money for charity. My favourite subject to teach in school is Maths because I like to help children to solve Maths problems.

Mrs Read- Squirrels (1R) Teacher

I like to visit and explore different countries and experience their cultures. I loved living abroad in Spain and America, especially going to the American football games. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I like to go to theme parks, the cinema and watching musicals at the the theatre. My favourite shows are 'The Lion King' and 'Wicked'. I also enjoy reading, particularly the Harry Potter series of novels.

I love listening to music and frequently go to local gigs at the weekend. I'm also learning to play the guitar, so hopefully it won't be long until I can play some of my favourite songs.

Mrs Colyer- Rabbits (1H) Teaching Assistant

I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am always busy, having days out at the beach, movie nights at home or doing art and crafts. I spend a lot of my time in the summer down in Whitstable and Herne Bay where we have a caravan. I love running, and for the last few years I have completed the race for life pretty muddy run which is lots of fun. I enjoy traveling and going abroad with my family, I have been to Greece, Spain, New York, Rome, Florence and would love to go to Venice one day.

Mrs Eckersall- Squirrels (1R) Teaching Assistant

I spend my weekends with my boys and love being outside. I also enjoy catching up with friends and being creative with fabric and wool. You can't beat getting stuck into a good book, preferably with a big bar of chocolate to eat!

and Mrs Fawcett

Mrs Furniss and Mrs Fawcett- Outdoor Learning Teaching Assistants

Mrs Furniss- I really enjoy being outdoors and exploring the countryside with my family.  We love going on adventures, climbing up big hills, exploring woodlands and  identifying and finding out about trees. During the summer months you will find me at our beach hut where we spend most of our weekend crabbing, paddling, building sand sculptures and relaxing. I love reading books and playing board games with my family when we are at home. My favourite subject to teach is outdoor learning as it is fantastic to see children taking safe risks and feeling confident to explore and develop their own ideas and skills. 

Mrs Fawcett- My favourite place is being outdoors whether it’s walking my dog, being on a beach or gardening which is how I like to relax. I also go to yoga once a week and love spending time with friends and family.
