Mr Sibley – Headteacher

Before arriving at Boothferry in September 2014, I  had been Headteacher at Cliffe VC Primary school near Selby and Executive Headteacher of Wetwang and Sledmere Primary schools. I have a wife, 3 children, 3 cats and a dog that keep me very busy. In my spare time I like live music, playing cricket and camping. I have visited many countries including Portugal, Russia, Austria and America, where I went to university.

I came to Boothferry in January 2015 having previously been Deputy at Naburn Primary in York. I love working at Boothferry and am particularly interested in making a wonderful exciting curriculum, full of challenge and learning opportunities. I have three children and love playing all types of sport.

I came to Boothferry in September 2018 having previously worked in EYFS at Cliffe VC Primary School near Selby. I love exercising and participate in an outdoor exercise class twice a week. I have a road bike, so often spend my weekends cycling around the local area. I also love to read.
