Mr M Smith
Assistant Head - Performance Intelligence
After graduating in Biological Sciences, I started teaching in 1999. Prior to arriving at Colyton in 2004, I worked in two schools in Hertfordshire and Devon.
Here at Colyton, I have worked as Head of Biology and Science for a number
of years and thoroughly love the role of supporting those students who have ambitions of careers in STEM. Outside the classroom, I support the Medical, Veterinary and Dentist students prepare for their applications and work as an interviewer for two Medical Schools. Professionally, I help to mentor and develop middle leaders through the NPQML programme.
As a child, I completed Ten Tors and I thoroughly enjoy training the next generation, although keeping up with the 45 milers is increasingly challenging!
My family’s love of France, walking, the natural world and travelling keeps me busy and fills holiday time as well as following Somerset Cricket and Exeter Chiefs.
