    Head of Secondary PE

    James Regan

    I have always had a strong interest in sport, some might call it more of an obsession! This is the catalyst in my passion for teaching, I recall back to my careers meeting in secondary school which I remember clearly; when asked if I had thought what I want to do when I leave school? The answer was simple… “I want to be a PE teacher sir!”

    I studied Sport and Exercise Science at Portsmouth University and completed my PGCE in Essex where I lived and grew up. My first School as a PE teacher was in Essex which I really enjoyed, two years in I stepped into the Pastoral Team becoming a Head of Year where I remained for a further three years. The school was great and I was very comfortable.

    However, I began to think there is so much more out there I haven’t seen. The vast opportunities, experiences and culture this country has to offer had hooked me. Having never really left my home county before this is a challenge I am really excited about.

    Being a PE teacher I live and breath sport, I will try my hand at anything sport related. My background is football where I became a ‘National Universities Champion’ and racquet sports. My favorite sporting story is Derek Redmond in the 1992 Olympics, the message and emotion it brings as a reminder of someone’s determination and courage – if you haven’t seen it, now is your chance to.

    EAL and English Leader

    Sarah Hall

    I knew from a very early age that I wanted to work with children. During high school I travelled to South Africa for my work experience in a hospice for children. It was at this moment in time that I knew I wanted to make a difference.

    I believe passionately that education is a powerful gift that can unlock opportunities in life for every child and adult, irrespective of the barriers they face. I believe that we are all learners with talents waiting to be rewarded in success and celebration.

    I hold a BA Honours in Primary Education specialising in Special Educational Needs which I obtained at a university in England. I have been a teacher for 10 years now. It only seems like yesterday that I started! Everyday is different in my role as a teacher and it is never boring!
