New Head Teacher - By Millie
Mr Silvester worked at North Ridge School, Doncaster before Newman School. He enjoyed school as a child but he went to an all boys school and would have liked it to be a mixed school. His favourite subject at school was History. When asked his first impression of Newman School he said “fantastic”. He wants more trips, more things for the website and to make reception look better. Mr Silvester didn’t think he would be a head teacher when he was a child. He has only wanted to be a head teacher for the last few years.
