Meet the Teachers

Scott Griffin and Tom Brookes are our Year 4 teachers

 Scott

Scott Griffin is in his eleventh year at Barnes, having previously worked at St Clement with St James Primary School in Notting Hill. Scott worked until July 2018 as a highly effective, and much respected, Year 6 teacher. He also led on sport, a significant management responsibility. He remains firmly committed to continually extending sporting opportunities for pupils at our school. Scott took on a new leadership role at the start of the 2018-19 year, taking up the important role of Lower Key Stage 2 Leader.

Tom Brookes is now in his second year at Barnes Primary School having joined as a Newly Qualified Teacher in 2017. After graduating from Cardiff University in 2007 with a 2 (i) Hons. degree in Journalism, Film and Media, Tom predominantly worked for youth charities and social enterprises as a public speaker/facilitator and trainer. This provided Tom the opportunity to travel and work in hundreds of schools across the UK, as well as several working trips to schools in rural India. It was these experiences that led him to undertaking his PGCE at the Institute of Education (UCL) from 2016-17. In September 2018 Tom is looking forward to his second year, working closely with Scott.
