Alex Blackburn - Teacher

I was lucky enough to join the teaching team at Nunnykirk 6 years ago after travelling around the UK and abroad. I am SENCo and also teach Hospitality and Catering, English, RE and Geography. I feel very proud of the staff/pupil relationships we are able to achieve here as our class sizes are small, and really feel that we are able to make a difference to the lives of the young people who attend our special school by helping them achieve their individual learning needs.

As a Mum and Grandmother, I know only too well the importance of assisting children through education and have them arrive into adulthood as happy, confident, independent and knowledgeable. We pride ourselves on being able to enable our pupils to achieve such important skills and abilities, particularly when mainstream education has not been able to help.
