I have taught at Wisbech Grammar School for over 30 years and currently lead a team comprising Heads of Sport, Physiotherapist, Strength and Conditioning coach and PE staff.
Previously to this I taught History, was Head of PE and Games and a Head of Sport; this gave me the opportunity to teach sport during the week and take teams every weekend, which I believe provides our pupils with wonderful opportunities to play sport, develop as a sportsperson, meet other pupils, visit different places and develop as a young person.
My own sporting background has been in a wide range of sports including such sports as Athletics, Cricket, Hockey, Rugby, Swimming, Table Tennis and Tennis which gave me a wide range of experiences. I have been fortunate in playing Rugby Union, Rugby League and Hockey at a high level, as well as enjoying playing other sports for various teams whilst at school which is something I am passionate about and I would like to encourage all our pupils to play for the various school teams each term. Outside of school I have coached Rugby and Hockey to County and League teams.
My current role involves me overseeing our Majority and Minority Sports programme, recruiting staff and continuing to develop our programme so that we provide a good sporting experience for all pupils at WIsbech Grammar School. Also through our Sports Development programme to help pupils develop and fulfil their potential.
