St John Fisher is delighted to announce the additions of two new teachers who have started this term.
Mr Robson is the new Numeracy Co-ordinator and Teacher of Mathematics. He studied at the University of York for his degree in Mathematics and his PGCE. Mr Robson joined St John Fisher from Trinity Academy in Doncaster where he spent 10 years, and he has moved to be near his wife’s family, who are from Wigan. Mr Robson said: “I didn’t know what I wanted to be until I volunteered at a school in my second year at university and I fell in love with teaching. Mathematics is the only universal language and it encourages us to think both logically and creatively to solve problems in a range of contexts.”
Mrs Taylor is the new SENDCo – special educational needs and disabilities co-ordinator – and is also the person responsible for Looked After Children. Mrs Taylor completed her GCSEs and A-Levels at Ormskirk Grammar School, then went to Glyndwr University (NEWI as it was then) and completed a BSC (Hons) Biology degree. “I then took my PGCE at Edge Hill University, I studied photography to Level 3 at Preston’s College and studied for my NASENCO award at Edge Hill.” Mrs Taylor has joined St John Fisher from Moorbrook High School in Preston and has always wanted to be a teacher. “I enjoy helping students with additional needs reach their potential whether that is academically, socially, emotionally or spiritually,” said Mrs Taylor.
