My name is Mr Holt and I am the Year 5 class teacher. I am supported by Mrs Laidler. I have been a teacher for 18 years and enjoy working with children. Before becoming a teacher, I was a sports coach and swimming teacher. Working on the Summer camps in USA enabled me to teach swimming and also a variety of watersports, such as, water ski-ing, sailing, kayaking and windsurfing. At school I take pride in training the sports teams and taking them to compete at festivals, so that they are ready be their very best. I believe that there is a sport for everyone to succeed in, whether that is football, cricket, athletics, cross-country, etc. Away from school, I am also passionate about sports. I enjoy coaching my son’s football team and play football myself. As well as swimming with my children, we also enjoy playing golf together at Bishop Auckland Golf Club. I believe that life is for learning and that you’re never too old to gain new skills or talents. Recently, I have even found a hidden talent for playing table tennis which I do at a local table tennis club.
