Mr Chanfi

French Teacher

My name is Manrouf and I teach French to all the children across the school.

Mr Harries

PE Teacher and Teaching Assistant

I have been teaching at Wicklea Academy since 2014, mainly teaching outdoor PE to children across the year groups and was at Waycroft prior to this. I have been teaching since 2002, mainly at secondary schools in Birmingham, my last job there being a School Sports Coordinator. Outside school I support Wales and Swansea City in football and rugby - encouraging my son to do the same. I like to dig and grow produce in my allotment and play the drums when my neighbours are out!

Mrs Lucas


I am Mrs Lucas and I started at Waycroft MAT in September 2015. I have worked in education for over 15 years, working in a variety of different schools within Somerset and Bristol. During my career I have taught across all age ranges from Nursery to Year 8. As SENDCo I always strive to provide support and guidance for families, helping their children flourish and achieve their best.

Outside school I enjoy spending time exploring the local area with my family, cooking and kickboxing.
