John Hicks

This will be my seventh year teaching at Galmpton Primary School. Prior to this, I spent 8 years working for a language company in Madrid, Spain. I worked in the editorial department on a range of products, including TV scripts, a magazine, language courses, text books and online material. I then went on to coordinate two nationwide projects: a series of primary school resources and a collection of 25 books in collaboration with the national newspaper, El Mundo. I was even afforded the opportunity to host a weekly radio programme!

I graduated in Hispanic Studies at Birmingham University and I continue to be very passionate about languages and literature.

I joined Galmpton Primary School in 2016, and have enjoyed working in Key Stage 1 and 2 classes. 

Prior to teaching, I graduated with a BSc in Environmental Sciences and commenced my career in Green Energy Management for EDF Energy.  I also worked in Environmental Education for a number of companies before deciding to alter my course and pursue a teaching career. 

I was fortunate in gaining a Teaching Assistant role within a 3 form entry primary school in Kent.  Following on from this, I completed a PGCE in Primary Education specialising in Science from the University of Exeter.  

I have 2 young children who absolutely love being outdoors, so we spend a lot of our free time exploring the wonderful countryside here in Devon.
