James Walker

Acting Assisstant Head and KS2 Team Leader

Hi I'm James and I joined the Vaynor at Easter in 2015, as Year 4 teacher, KS2, Maths and PE leader.  This year sees me having a change and moving to work and lead the KS1 Team, working in Year 2. My passion is football and I play for Pershore Town FC at the weekend. I also love shopping (not just for hair products) and going on holiday. I've been teaching for over 5 years now and still love the challenge and excitement that every school day brings.
