I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Easter break!

We are all looking forward to seeing the pupils back and having a busy term ahead to take us through to the summer break.

New members of staff
I am very excited to let you all know that we have two new members of staff joining the Tozer family this term.

Miss Matilda Rayner, who attended Tozer from the age of 3, is joining us to teach on Saturdays alongside Mrs Burnett and myself. Matilda has very successfully gained her teaching qualifications and spent several years assisting the Tozer staff on a Saturday, before moving South to further her career at the prestigious Performers College in Essex. Matilda will be teaching classes predominately on a Saturday and we are very much looking forward to having her back at Tozer. We are also very lucky to have a new teacher for the Inter Foundation & Senior Jazz classes on a Tuesday evening. Sam Holden is a young creative performer who is very excited to join the Tozer team to create, share and develop skills with the Jazz students from next week. Sam & Matilda have both been trained at Tozer, have experience in teaching children & students in dance and have DBS certificates. I am sure everyone will welcome them with enthusiasm and support them by working hard in their upcoming classes.
