Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school?
Hi, I’m Mr Fitzpatrick and I am chief Meerkat in Year 5. I’m currently a Newly Qualified Teacher all the way from Liverpool!
What did you study at University?
I studied Primary Mathematics Education with QTS at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk.
What were your favourite subjects at school?
At school I was obsessed with Maths, Art and D&T – I love being creative! I was that passionate about my art, in college I completed a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, where I had an exhibition on display in the Tate Gallery, London.
What did you do before you were a teacher?
I worked for one of the biggest leisure companies in the UK… as a Team Leader in a Bowling Alley! I loved my job, although I’m rubbish at bowling!!
What do you like to do out of school?
My favourite thing to do is to take my dogs out for a walk, unfortunately though they’re still in Liverpool, but I still get the odd FaceTime from my Pug! I also enjoy reading and drawing.
What's your favourite meal?
You can not go wrong with a good ol’ steak and ale pie, chips and peas with lots and lots of gravy!
Is there anything you really don't like?
Can you describe yourself in one adjective?
