Mr Andy Dobson

Year 4 teacher & Phase Leader

I’ve been teaching for 20 years in a variety of schools from Middle Schools with over 900 pupils to little village schools with only 3 classrooms in total.

I have been privileged to have worked at Estcots for 5 years as Phase Leader. I’m currently in Year 4. I love working with children of any age and children constantly surprise and delight me with their enthusiasm, imagination and maturity.
I lead Curriculum Development in the school, supporting our fantastic teams with their imaginative topics. My favourite topic has been ‘Colours of Africa’, a project that culminated in a really wonderful gallery of work and film at Chequermead.

This topic led me to travel to Tanzania to work with pupils there to make a film to share with pupils back at Estcots.

A Few Things About Me

When I’m not at work, I’m a keen traveller. Trekking in Borneo, overland travel through China and riding on the highest train in the world in Peru are just some of the adventures I’ve been lucky enough to have experienced in my summer holidays.

This year, my adventures have been much closer to home as I’ve become a dad for the first time!
