Mr G Wentworth


I was born and educated in Leek and have lived in the windswept village of Flash for over 15 years. I went to Sheffield Hallam University, where I obtained a BSC Honours in PE with QTS. I am married and have three children.  All three attend Harpur Hill, Emily is in Year 6 (and has just been chosen to be Head Girl), Freddie is in Year 4 (and has just been signed to Port Vale's U9 academy team) and George is in Year 1 and loves making things! They are following in their mother’s footsteps, whom attended the school in the 1980’s. 

I have been a PE teacher at Buxton Community School for over 18 years now and also act as the Transition Co-ordinator. This involves visiting and working with the catchment Primary Schools and ensuring we gather information about each child that is moving from local primary schools to the Community School.  I also help to put on events and activities to ensure students are ready to move up from Year 6 and ensure their transition is as smooth as possible.

I became an elected parent governor in November 2018. I sit on the Full School Governing Body and also the Management and Leadership sub-committee.  I am the link governor for Maths.

It was an honour to be elected as a Parent Governor and I hope I can pass on some of the knowledge and experience I have gained working in Education; to ensure Harpur Hill continues to thrive and gets the true recognition it deserves!
