Mr Matthew Medhurst

Class Teacher - Larch

Time at Airthrie: 01/02/2000 (18 years ago)
Qualifications: ALCM Post Graduate Diploma (Acting); ALCM
Specialist Subjects: Drama/English, RE

Having joined Airthrie in 2000 I left briefly in 2005/6 to take a post-graduate qualification in Drama. After graduating from the Courtyard Theatre School I was away touring in various acting roles for the next 3 years and then returned to Airthrie whilst pursuing my acting career at weekends and during school holidays.

I have continued in my role teaching Drama, English and RE (as Co-ordinator) and also write and produce Airthrie's annual Carol Service and Summer Production. Additionally, I run the Drama and Football Clubs.

As my teaching commitment has grown I have become increasingly dedicated to my work with junior pupils observing their amazing development and enthusiasm for all aspects of school life.

I am delighted to be a Class Teacher in Year 4 and relish the challenges of both teaching and pastoral care for these 8/9 year old pupils.
