Working as a team, our key focus is making lessons as fun, challenging and engaging as possible.


Mr Smith taught in a full time position at one school previously in the UK and has had some experience teaching abroad. He has a keen interest in the environment, English teaching and ensuring children see the purpose of their learning, the value of a growth mind set and treat others as they would expect to be treated. Outside of school he enjoys looking after his two young children, music and outdoor swimming.


Mrs Thorpe has taught in full time positions at two Bristol schools prior to joining the Sefton Team, as well as experience teaching in Cambodia and Australia. She believes learning should be fun and encourages children be curious, ask questions and make suggestions. Mrs Thorpe is passionate about music and as a keen singer runs the Key Stage 2 choir.  In her spare time she enjoys attending music festivals, cooking and travelling.


We strongly believe children's experiences in school should be a partnership between Parent(s)/ Carer(s) and school staff. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any point if there is something you wish to discuss.

Christmas letters by Acacia class

The first Christmas phrase is "Nollaig Chridhell All Rebels!!" Nollaig Chridhell is Happy Christmas in Scottish Gaelic. The second Christmas phrase is "CMXCIX Seasons Greetings MMXVI". The two Roman numbers are 999 and 2016. One side uses paper weaving because the Celts wove a lot of their clothing, and one side uses mosaic methods.
