Mr Bufton: Year 8 Progress Leader and Teacher of Maths
With the arrival of several new members of staff this term, we thought we’d try and introduce a few of them to you.
First up is Mr Bufton:
• When did you start at Eggar's?
As a student (2002-2007). As a staff member (2020)
• Where did you teach before?
Unsted Park School but predominantly most of my teaching has been based in Aldershot at Ash Manor and Alderwood
• First memory of teaching?
Not being able to work the interactive whiteboard on my first day
• First impression of Eggar's?
Exactly how I left it
• What's the best thing about teaching?
Being the reason somebody understands something and the day-day interactions.
Seeing young people become young adults is really rewarding.
• If you were a tree, what kind would you be and why?
A palm tree: In the sun and on the beach!!
• When you’re not being a Year 8 Progress Leader, what do you do?
Play football semi-professionally and I'm a former PE teacher.
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
Some of our talented musicians were able to play to their parents and carers in a Summer Showcase on Monday evening. Here's a mini taster of our band and their amazing musical talent! #WeAreEggars https://t.co/3wIeXrP16D 6:47 AM - 22 Jul 2021
