Mr Such

Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school?
I'm Christopher Such, and I teach a group of year 5 children in The Den between Monday and Thursday.  I'm also the school's science co-ordinator, and I run a lunchtime mathematics club.
What did you study at University?
I studied chemistry at UEA, earning a first class degree and a master's degree and in the process winning the Bayer Crop-Science award for the best research project, the Katrizky prize for the best performance on the master's programme and the Infineum award for the best performance in physical chemistry. Following this, I studied at Cambridge University to gain my teaching qualification.
What were your favourite subjects at school?
I particularly enjoyed mathematics, science and English, though my favourite lesson each week was always PE.
What did you do before you were a teacher?
I worked as part of an intervention team at a local secondary school briefly after completing my degree.
What do you like to do out of school?
I enjoy reading books, listening to politics and history podcasts, playing golf and watching football.
What's your favourite meal?
Lasagne or paella.
Is there anything you really don't like?
There are too many things to list.
Can you describe yourself in one adjective?
