Meet our Teachers

At the John Hampden School Wendover, we have a hardworking and dedicated team of staff who have a common goal in making every child’s time in school enjoyable and memorable.  We have teachers,  teaching assistants  and learning support assistants who are all passionate about children.

Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Learning Support Assistants  work together to ensure every child’s needs are met. They have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of each child, enabling each child to feel secure and safe in school.

We are friendly and approachable and we encourage all our parents to take an active part in their child’s learning and within the school community.
