The Teaching Team

Miss Alex Bancroft

I started my career as a Year 4 teacher in Reading in 2015 where I was the PE coordinator, an area of the curriculum that I particularly enjoy teaching as it allows children to get active and learn creatively. I joined Shiphay Learning Academy in 2017, and have loved working in such a positive and welcoming school with so many artistic opportunities for both myself and the pupils. My main subject specialism within my teaching degree was Art. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside all ages at Shiphay Learning Academy on art projects that raise awareness on global issues. Some of these art projects have been showcased at Occombe Farm, Torre Abby and Paignton Zoo. I strongly believe that it is these exciting learning opportunities that spark children’s love for learning and creates life- long learners.
