Mrs Barbara Ward ...Who we are


Job Title: Teacher
Time at Airthrie: 18 Years (November 1999)
Qualification(s): Teaching Certificate London

I began my teaching career in London after training at the Froebel Educational Institute (now part of the University of Roehampton).

Sometime later I moved to Cheltenham, teaching in local schools, and after a while became the Deputy Head of the new St Mary's Infant School in Prestbury!

My next career move was to Bonn in West Germany accompanying my husband where we both worked at the British Embassy Preparatory School. I enjoyed many happy years in this international environment.

In 1999 we returned to Cheltenham and I soon 'discovered' Airthrie where I have, for the past 10 years, taught Reception and Year 2 forms. I now enjoy a happy co-operative teaching relationship with my fellow Beech teacher, Mrs Biddy Wilshaw.
