Year 6

Mr Tom Shepherd

Yr. 6 Class Teacher

Welcome to Year 6
Hello everyone. I am currently the year 6 class teacher and in my 3rd year of teaching at St Newlyn East. I was fortunate enough to complete my teacher training at St Newlyn East under the guide of our Year 1 Teacher in 2015 before returning as a fully qualified teacher a couple of years later. During my time away, I was still working within Kernow Learning at The Bishops CofE Learning Academy. Having taught across most year groups, I have found it particularly rewarding teaching upper key stage 2 and helping prepare children for secondary school and later life. In school I oversee PE, and alongside Miss Lobb, help to oversee humanities.

When not in the classroom, i have a number of other passions that are mainly sports. I am often found on a football pitch during the winter and then taking advantage of our wonderful coastline attempting to surf in the summer.

I started at St Newlyn East learning academy as a parent volunteer 13 years ago when my son started in reception. I have worked with all age groups and enjoy working 1:1 with children.
I like walking and doing puzzles. I love to travel and visit family in Greece when I can.
