Henbury Court Primary Academy

Tom Pilkington

5 years ago, I was working as an environmental consultant in London and it dawned on me that working in an office with adults was extremely unfulfilling. I decided to retrain and become a teacher and haven’t looked back since; to have a job that I truly enjoy is a feeling I am grateful for every day. 

Outside of school I love playing football (although since turning 30 I am constantly getting injured!) and exploring the countryside on my mountain bike. I find that doing an activity that could go very wrong very quickly engages my brain more and makes me live in the moment. I also have a real love for animals and have been lucky enough to see some majestic creatures such as Orca, Grizzly bears and Hammerhead sharks in the wild.
