Mr Chris Huscroft
Chris was brought up in Goole and attended Hook Primary School and then Vermuyden Secondary School. He went on to study for four years at St Martin’s College Lancaster, where he gained his BA with QTS (Qualified Teaching Status). Throughout his time at St Martin’s, Chris retained strong links with schools in the East Riding. When Chris qualified he returned to Cottingham where he had completed a teaching placement, to take up his first full-time teaching post. He now calls Cottingham home having lived there for the past nine years.
In 2009 and after six years of teaching in Cottingham, Chris was appointed as the Deputy Headteacher here at Swanland Primary. Throughout his time here he has taught in Year Five and worked with classes across Key Stage Two, providing PPA cover for their teachers. He has also been the subject leader for maths and having a real passion for curriculum design spends a lot of time working with staff and children to ensure that the curriculum continues to be as ‘outstanding’ as it always has been. Chris played a key management role in the smooth transition to Academy Status in 2011. In 2014, Chris was appointed as Executive Head Teacher for the Swanland Education Trust.
Outside of school Chris spends a lot of time with friends and family. He enjoys eating out, trying new foods, getting out and about on walks and visiting his family holiday home in Marbella, Spain.
