Mr Matthew Medhurst

Pastoral Lead and Performing Arts' Co-ordinator

Time at Airthrie: 01/02/2000 (20 years ago)
Qualifications: ALCM Post Graduate Diploma (Acting); ALCM
Specialist Subjects: Drama, PSHE, RE

Initially, I worked at Airthrie from 2000-2005 before leaving to take a post-graduate qualification in Drama. After graduating from the Courtyard Theatre School in 2007 I spent the next six years pursuing a career as a professional actor.

I returned to Airthrie in 2013 and commenced formal teaching, in Year 4, from 2014. Throughout this time I was also the Co-ordinator for RE and PSHE, as well as the writer and producer of Airthrie's annual Carol Service and Summer Production.

Additionally, I run the after-school Drama and Football Clubs. Within my new role as Pastoral Lead, I aim to enthuse and educate the children as we look at all aspects of the RE and PSHE curriculum, as well as ensure their health, well-being and happiness during their time at Airthrie.

I relish the challenges of overseeing all Performing Arts subjects as well as being part of the Leadership Team in the School.
