Head Teacher  

Mrs A Sherratt


Deputy Head Teacher

Miss A Smith

I have worked at St Modwen’s for 8 years, teaching across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.  I am the subject leader for RE and PE and thoroughly enjoy teaching Maths and Reading.  My role at school is extremely varied and keeps me busy!  I am passionate about helping children reach their God-given potential and supporting them to find the subject they love the most!  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, keeping fit and taking part in fundraisers to raise money for charity!  


Assistant Head Teacher

Mr D Quinn

I have been a teacher for over nine years and joined St Modwen’s six years ago.  I am the Maths subject leader and am passionate about Mastery Maths and instilling a belief in all pupils that they can succeed.  I love teaching Maths, RE, Reading, Geography and History.  I am passionate about fostering a love of learning in all pupils and giving them the confidence and skills they need to succeed.  I have a young son who I love spending time with.  In my spare time, I enjoy playing Gaelic football, football, running and walking my dog.
