Hi I'm James and I'm the Assistant Head at The Vaynor. I joined the school during the Easter of 2015 and have enjoyed every minute of 5 years. During this period of have lead both Key Stage 1 and 2, working in years 2 and 4. I have recently taken on the role of Director of Mathematics across our Endeavour Trust, leading and supporting teachers and other Maths leads. I have a real passion for Primary Maths so if you have any questions, I would be more than happy to help! 


Outside of school, my passion is sport. I have played for Alvechurch, Pershore Town & Studley football clubs over the years but you will now find me on a golf course instead! I also enjoy travelling and spending as much of the summer in the sun, as possible!


I have recently had a baby girl called Alena who is currently taking up any spare time I have!
