Outside of the Classroom
I truly love my career, and I couldn't be happier than teaching. Unbeknownst to many, after leaving school, I became a semi-professional rugby player for Fylde RFC. Unfortunately, injury brought a halt to my playing career, so this caused me to look for a new sport. I quickly developed a love of competing in various endurance events such as Ironman triathlons, marathons, and ultramarathons worldwide. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to race for Great Britain in the Age Group squads at the European Middle Distance Triathlon Championships in 2016, the 2018 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and the USA National Championships in 2019. I have also competed in many endurance events, with the highlights being cycling from coast to coast of England in a day, cycling from the Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower and a 53-mile ultramarathon in Scotland. These events allow me to travel to wonderful destinations, meet new people and experience different cultures. I cannot wait to participate in some events in Thailand and the rest of Asia.
Thoughts on St Andrews
St Andrews is a highly welcoming educational environment where the staff are genuinely dedicated to delivering the highest education. Children of all abilities can learn in a safe, encouraging and engaging environment.
Aspirations for STA
Whilst at STA I am looking forward to helping with the biathlon, triathlon and touch rugby events!
I am scared of spiders, and I have completed the highest bungee jump from a bridge in the world!
