Vanessa Fearon

Year 6 Class Teacher (5-6VF)

Vanessa graduated with a BA Honours in Product Design from Salford University. She completed her PGCE at Manchester University and completed a Master’s in Psychology at Leeds Becket University.

Vanessa is from Manchester and spent four years at Salford University. During this time she worked as a Key Worker supporting young people with various needs whilst completing an NVQ Level 2 in Mentoring, Health and Social Care. She graduated with a BA Honours in Product Design. After a year  working in industry as a designer in marketing for a care company, Vanessa went on to study teaching across Design and Technology (D&T), which also incorporated special educational needs (SEN). She graduated from Manchester University with a PGCE in Secondary Education.

Vanessa’s first appointment was teaching and leading across D&T in the SEN sector, where she remained and began to develop her path due to interests in psychology and supporting children with additional needs. Vanessa later completed a Master’s in Psychology at Leeds Beckett University, which was based in SEN and educational development and has predominantly remained teaching and leading in SEN.

She has a strong interest in psychology, development and learning through creative means and believes in the philosophy that - ‘creative teaching enables all students to learn differently and equally. It is a platform for growth and continuity’ Outside of school, Vanessa is spontaneous and enjoys an array of activities such as travelling, snorkelling, walking, fitness training, practical challenges and socialising as she likes to keep busy and enjoy life.
