Mr Mathers started his teaching career at a senior boarding school before moving to a 3-18 boarding school in York. After that he has spent three years at London independent day schools teaching Reception to Year 6. Outside of school he coaches Saracens academy, working specifically on their athletic development.
Mr Mathers believes that all students can benefit from physical education, as he knows how much it has given him. He is a big believer in improving children’s mental and physical health and knows that sport and PE can facilitate this. He believes in making sport fun and accessible for all and is convinced there is a sport for everyone.
Personally Mr Mather’s is as passionate about sport in his own life. He still plays competitively in his favourite sport Rugby, you will definitely hear him talking about this. On top of this he has completed many long distance charity cycles. Most recently completing Chase the Sun, which is a 205 mile bike ride from East to the West of England in one day.
