Year 3

Mr James Iliffe

Class Teacher

My name is Mr Iliffe and I am the Year 3 teacher. I have worked in several different schools in my career and taught in many different year groups. I am the Math and Computing lead which are both subjects that I am very passionate about.

I have lived in Cornwall for many years; the best thing is the sea and everything it has to offers. I love surfing, kayaking, snorkelling and SUPing - I would class myself as a water baby. My other passions are participating in triathlons, rugby and travelling. I still compete in triathlons which is a combination of swimming, cycling and running. My passion for travelling has taken me all over the world surfing whilst having an adventure! I like to share my knowledge of the world within my teaching.

Mr Andrew McKim


I have now worked at the school for just over two years. I can honestly say it is the most rewarding roles I have ever undertaken. I take great inspiration from supporting the children to develop their skills, knowledge and abilities to over overcome their challenges and succeed.

Outside of school, my pride and joy are my three children. I have a daughter at university studying psychology. I have two boys, which fill me with pride. Football, the beach and gaming preoccupies our time. Any spare time I spend searching for records – I have had a passion for this since I was 13 and led to me DJing in Warrington and Manchester.
