Class Teachers: Mrs Boardmand and Mrs Bickerton

4 JBO Mrs Boardman

Hello everyone, 

My name is Mrs Boardman. I was born in Leek but now live in Newcastle under Lyme. I Completed my degree in Manchester before working for a clothing designer creating glamorous wedding dresses. I have also worked as a manager for a restaurant chain before starting work as a Teaching assistant 10 years ago. This is where my love of teaching grew and developed. I completed my PGCE during one of the infamous covid years. This is my second year of teaching and it is the best job in the world! In my time away from the class room, I have 3 wonderful children, a dedicated husband and a very cute dog called Cassie! I love being outside, volunteering with my scouting group and growing plants and vegetables.  

My hero is Emily Pankhurst, who contributed hugely to achieving equality for woman and giving woman the equal and important right to vote 


4 JBI Mrs Bickerton

Hello everyone, 

My name is Mrs Bickerton. I was born in Newcastle Under Lyme and now live in Biddulph. 

My passion since I was at school myself was to always become a primary school teacher. 

Once my two children, who are called Jack and James, started school I decided to train as a teacher. I completed a 2-year fast track accountancy degree at Staffordshire University where I achieved a first class honors' before completing my PGCE at Liverpool Hope University. I have been fortunate to have been teaching for the last five years and could never imagine doing anything else as I am very passionate about helping children achieve their full potential. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two sons, husband and pet dog named Molly. My inspiration is my mum because she is my best friend and a very hard working and supportive person that always helps anyone. I am very much looking forward to my first year here at Stoke Minster and being part of the school's journey.
