    Draycott & Rodney Stoke First School's inspirational staff
    • Mike Jory
      Headteacher

      When I’m not being Headteacher of two fantastic schools, I’m a keen golfer, cook, gardener and sports spectator – I support Wales and Swansea!

    • Lisa Hill
      Mars Class Teacher

      My children are both sports enthusiasts – some of my favourite places to be are on the rugby sidelines or helping my daughter’s hockey team.

    • Jo Banwell
      Jupiter Class Teacher

      I feel very lucky that, since qualifying as a teacher in 2001, I have only worked in village schools – they really are at the heart of the community.

    • Debbie Brabbins
      Pluto Class Teacher

      Quality time with my family is important to me and in my spare time I have been known to enjoy the occasional roller disco with my daughter, niece and nephew!

    • Jane Rawles
      Mars & Jupiter Class Teacher

      I adore children’s books and reading stories to children of all ages. If I had to choose a favourite book it would be ‘Tiddler’ (but it’s a tough decision).

    • We like Draycott First School because the staff always go that extra mile to accommodate both the needs of the parent and child.

    • Going to Draycott First School has boosted my children’s confidence and encouraged their independence. It’s a friendly, caring environment that I would highly recommend.

    • Our children have forged great friendships here and we feel so fortunate to have such a school on our doorstep.

    • Draycott is a fantastic village school where all the pupils are treated and known as individuals, within a strong community framework.
