Rachel completed her Bachelor of Education (hons) Degree at Middlesex University in London. Part of the degree included the invaluable opportunity to study at a school in the MidWest USA, Muncie, Indiana. This involved teaching and being a fully recognised member of the teaching department. Rachel has also worked in inner city London, Hertfordshire, Hastings and Eastbourne, teaching across the entire Primary age range 5-11 years.

I have been incredibly lucky to work with some outstanding professionals throughout my career, including current colleagues from whom I continue to learn a great deal.

After working in retail and local government, Stephen decided to follow his dream of teaching. He went back to college and then university at the age of 27.

I have always enjoyed challenging myself, in sport and and academic setting, and I want to enter teaching to share, support and encourage others to build their own pathways in life. Going back to college and then university presented me with many challenges, but the overall experience and joy of seeing other progress made those good struggles worth it! I love teaching Year 2 and watching the children grow in confidence with every new experience we share together.
