Mr Ben Aspin

Position: 
Year 7 and Middle School Coordinator
Qualifications: 
MChem from the University of York PGCE from the University of Cambridge
I have been teaching for 6 years, having taught all over England and in many different capacities. I have been a science and maths teacher in 3 different schools in Suffolk, a primary teacher in York, and have joined the school after being a Head of Science in a school in Ipswich. I believe in the wonder factor- if students are not enjoying what they are doing, and cannot explore new areas, they wouldn’t learn as well. You will see a lot of quirky and exciting things in my lessons, and hopefully will leave the room with a smile on your face and a mild headache from your own curiosity being fed! I am a keen baker, which will be seen as soon as I buy myself an oven in Brazil! I love to have group activities with friends, like Zumba, watching films, cycling and barbeques, and like to explode things in the lab (under every safety measure possible).
