PE Coordinator/ Educational Visits Coordinator - Mr. Neil Simmonds

Mr Simmonds - PE Coordinator

Hello.  I'm Mr Simmonds and I'm currently working in Year 6.  I'm responsible for PE and all Educational Visits, including both our residentials.  Dukes Barn is, by some distance, my favourite week of the working year!

I have many interests and hobbies, some of which are more enjoyable to pursue than others.  Following Notts County is something I wouldn't recommend  if your health is important to you. 

I am a member at Trent Bridge and, if pushed,  would say that cricket is my favourite sport. 

My ideal day would be a walk in the Yorkshire Dales, followed by a pint of real ale in a country pub, preferably next to a real fire and with something to read.  If the weather isn't suitable, then Broadway would be the alternative option.  I love all things cinema.   

If I had to name a favourite book from my childhood, I'd go for The Ghost of Thomas Kempe.  I remember being captivated by the mystery and this led to a lifelong love of this genre.
