Larry has been working as a Second in Science for the past 6 years, having previously been a Specialist Teacher of Science in and around the City of Coventry. After completing his Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Warwick University, Larry has taught Biology to A-Level and gained numerous qualifications to support his ability to deliver enriching learning opportunities to young people. Over his career, Larry has been part of many interesting and diverse learning communities spanning a multitude of different settings.
This has helped him to form a love of teaching and recognise the positive difference it can make in the lives of young people. During his first role he helped to build a transition program for pupils making the step up from Primary to Secondary education. Building on this success along with a motivated group of staff, he went on to start a summer school program delivering learning opportunities and life experiences to the same group of pupils. Building on his passion for the outdoors and his background in scouting, Larry helped to start the Duke of Edinburgh Award within his school. Having taken on this challenge he has subsequently qualified as an expedition leader, first aider and rifle instructor. These skills have helped him to provide amazing learning opportunities for the young people he works with, along with developing key characteristics such as resilience and creativity.
Larry has always enjoyed being in the outdoors and challenging himself both physically and emotionally. He has recently completed the Chase Walk a 40 mile hike completed in 14 hours and tackled his fear of heights traversing the knife edge ridge of Crib Goch. In his spare time he likes to travel and spend time sat around a campfire.
