Gareth is an inspirational teacher who has revolutionised the teaching and learning of information and digital technology within the school and within the local community.

He uses a wide range of technologies and digital platforms both within the curriculum and during extra-curricular sessions to promote learning and enjoyment. This has had an impact not only on academic results but on pupils’ wellbeing and happiness. Outreach work in the community has also engaged adults in becoming more confident users of information and digital technology.

Gareth has a clear vision that supports the school motto of ‘Aspire Achieve Believe.’ His vision is inclusive and pupil–focused, and he is passionate in his belief that all pupils can engage in technology to improve the quality of their education and the quality of their lives.
