The Galileo Tutor Team
Miss Cumbo - GFCO
Hi, My name is Miss Cumbo and I started working at Purbrook Park 4 years ago. I am the Lead Teacher for Art, Design and Technology and I specialise in Textiles and Food. Purbrook Park is a beautifully kind school where pupils are given the opportunity to flourish as individuals. Over the 4 years I have been part of this school I have been blow away with how kind, supportive and giving both pupils and staff are at Purbrook Park.
Being part of the Galileo team is obviously a reward in itself as we are the best and the winning House! I am proud to be a Galilean.
As a tutor group GFCO are a hardworking and determined group. We have talented athletes, dancers, horse riders and artists, but most of all we always have a laugh and a giggle. 2021-2022 is going to be the year of giving, kindness and more Galileo wins!!!

Mrs Hinks - GJHI
We are so lucky in Galileo to have such wonderful role models as Mrs Walsh and Mrs Udy. They are true inspiration to not only pupils but also to staff and the tutor teams they lead.
Our tutor group work well in the family groups we have, this academic year. Every member of our tutor group has a different strength and it is great to see that these strengths are developing to ensure that each and every member of the tutor group has an important role to play.
I am proud to be tutor for GJHI, having been a pupil at Purbrook Park School, many years ago! It is so nice to see memories being made by pupils and I hope that they will be remembered as dearly, as the memories I hold from my school days.
Miss Lyons -GNLY
My name is Miss Lyons and I have been working here at Purbrook Park now as a Drama teacher for the past 10 years! I truly love Purbrook and I am very proud to be part of the Galileo House. Goes without saying of course - The best House!
I believe we are a school that nurtures and enables our pupils to be the very best they can be! A school that works together, stays together!
GNLY is a caring and hardworking tutor group. Everyone is friendly and will make any one feel at home. We like to compete hard and always put 100% into everything that we do.
We are a creative and thoughtful tutor group who take on challenges and are there for each other. 2022 is going to be a fantastic year and we can’t wait to throw ourselves into the year ahead!
Miss Brockett - GDBO
My name is Miss Brockett and my lovely tutor group are GDBO. Our house has a great mix of students with all different talents and skills and GDBO are a great example of this! The group are so fun and supportive of each other, but equally always work hard and contribute to tutor. Every single one of them is brilliant and continue to make Galileo the best house in the school!
Mrs Morgan - GKMO
My name is Mrs Morgan, and I have been teaching science at Purbrook Park for just over five years now. I was over the moon when I found out I was in Galileo House, he is, after all, the father of modern science!
Purbrook Park is a wonderful school, not too big and not too small. I feel like there is a real sense of community here, with everyone looking out for each other. It is very welcoming, and it means that nobody feels lost or like an outsider. Everyone can find their place here at Purbrook.
GKMR are like my own little family, there are some loud, excitable characters, as well as some quieter, more laid-back ones. But each and every one of them has a special place in my tutor group, and each and every one of them means just as much to me as the others.
Mr Lyons - GNLN
My name is Mr Lyons and I am a science teacher here at Purbrook Park. Purbrook has a lovely feel about it and has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for teachers and pupils alike.
GNLN pupils show that they are as much about discovering the talents and interests of one another as it is pushing ourselves to be the best we can be. As the year develops I cannot wait to see what they can achieve when they put their minds to it and I will be encouraging them every step of the way!
Mr Moon - GJMO
Hello, my name is Mr Moon and I am a teacher of physical education. I joined Purbrook Park In September and it is my first year teaching. As soon as I started I felt so welcome and supported by both staff and students.
Being a member of Galileo house means a lot to me as it feels like a real family oriented house. My tutor group, GJMO has certainly solidified this feeling as every single one of my tutees has shown such kindness and compassion throughout my start at Purbrook.
We are a dedicated and kind-hearted group willing to help others before we help ourselves. With this attitude I am confident my tutees will change the world.
