Mrs S Naylor

I studied a BA(Hons) degree in Physical Education and School Sport and also completed my PGCE in Secondary Physical Education at Edge Hill University. From a very early age my ambition was to become a PE teacher because it provides students with fantastic life skills such as communication, team building and resilience. I am passionate about promoting healthy and active lifestyles as well as encouraging students to continue participating in exercise after they leave Penwortham Girl’s High School. In my free time, I enjoy playing netball and particularly going to the theatre. My favourite musical that I have seen is ‘The Lion King’ – it’s a must see if you haven’t already.

PE Teachers

 

Mrs M Shahi

I qualified in Physical Education and Sports Science at the Teachers training University in Tehran, Iran. Then completed my Graduate Teacher Programme at Edge Hill University (St. Martin’s College partnership.)
I believe that teaching is an inspiring career and working with a huge range of people is very rewarding.
I have been teaching at Penwortham Girls since September 2003 and teaching young people here, in an outstanding school, is an amazing opportunity and rewarding job.
It is absolutely great seeing young girls making progress and building their confidence and enthusiasm.
My specialism has always been in teaching games and athletics

Mrs K Finnigen

I graduated from The University of Hull with a BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science degree before attending Liverpool John Moores University and completing a PGCE in Physical Education. PE was my favourite subject at school and I became a PE teacher to share my passion for the subject. Even if you’re not a “sporty” person, PE is a fun and engaging way to challenge yourself and try new things. My favourite sports are Athletics and Netball but I have loved teaching a wide range of sports through my career so far and I believe there is a sport for everyone, even if you haven’t found it yet! I have made lots of friends over the years I’ve been involved with sport and firmly believe PE is a great subject to meet new people and expand your friendship groups, no matter how old you are. Outside of school I enjoy going for walks, especially in the Lake District, and like Mrs Naylor, I love musical theatre!
