Hello, my name is Mr. Matt Sherfield. I teach years 4 and 5 at King’s Gate Primary School.
I am so excited and feel really lucky to have begun the journey of setting up our wonderful school, surrounded by amazing, supportive staff members and children.
I am currently in my tenth year of teaching, having previously taught years 3, 4 and 5; teaching is a job I have loved every minute of and continue to enjoy. It is a job that brings a new challenge every day so when the opportunity came up to start a brand new school, I jumped at the chance!
I work alongside Miss Garland and Mrs. Beardsley, two wonderful TAs who are fantastic with the children. We plan and work together to ensure that our learning is varied, fun and enjoyable!
Outside of work, I enjoy many pursuits such as walking our pet dog (Puzzle) with my family, visiting National Trust places and running competitively for my club, City of Salisbury Athletics and Running Club. I also enjoy watching films and reading; a favourite of mine is Harry Potter!
