Hello, my name is Mr Cavill and I am the teacher here at Rishton Methodist Primary in Topaz class. Having completed a BA in Primary Education, specialising in English and History, I am embarking on my first year here at RMS. Having visited the school before interview I was drawn to the school’s sense of community and I am thrilled to become part of the team. I look forward to the adventures that lie ahead with the children in my year 4 class.
Originally from Cornwall I have been living in Lancashire for the last 12 years or so. Having grown up in Cornwall, I have a passion for the outdoors and aim to provide the children at RMS, with opportunities to explore and enjoy the outdoor environment, while at the same time learning to respect it. With a background in forest school activities and first-hand experience of the benefits and enjoyment children receive, I look forward to incorporating aspects of this into my day to day teaching.
Away from the classroom I enjoy outdoor pursuits such as canoeing and I am a big sports fan, particularly rugby and follow the Exeter Chiefs. I am a big music fan and I look forward to holidays with my family, Italy being a favourite destination, mainly for its history which is one of my favourite subjects to learn about and teach. Due to my enjoyment of history and the outdoors, you can usually find me at the weekends with my wife and children, charging a castle to defeat an evil wizard, or exploring woodland in search of dragons and other such beasts.
