Mrs Ruth Gray

Year 5 Teacher & Phase 3 Leader

I completed a four-year BA Primary Education degree at Chichester University in 2002, having decided to train as a teacher after a long career in social work. My degree in English with Education has supported me in developing a passion for the teaching of English to young children.

Prior to moving to Estcots school I worked for eleven years as a class teacher and leader at a school in Crawley. I believe passionately in a personalised education for every child, I have a holistic approach to working with children and always aim to meet individual needs. This includes building self-esteem and teaching children to value learning. I love working here at Estcots and coming into school each morning is a pleasure.

A Few Things About Me

I live in Burgess Hill will my husband Steve and two of my four adult children. I have a large extended family and my favourite part of the week, apart of course from being in school, is our regular family breakfast on a Saturday morning!

I swim several mornings a week and go to an evening yoga class.
