Galileo Tutors

Mr Steane – House Leader Galileo - Pastoral

My name is Mr Steane and I have been the proud House leader for Galileo for 2 years. Galileo prides itself on being a competitive, fun, hardworking and caring Houseand I am proud to work alongside all of the staff and students within it. Most importantly, I am proud to be part of the Purbrook Park wider school community and thoroughly enjoy working with the students to achieve their goals during their time with us. 

We have a fantastic team of tutors from different subjects   in Galileo House. 

The Galileo Tutor Team - 

Miss Cumbo - 7G2 

Hi, My name is Miss Cumbo and I started working at Purbrook Park a year ago. I came here as the Lead Teacher for Art, Design and Technology and I specialise in Textiles and Food. Even though I have only been here for a year, from day 1 I was 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 (check my spelling on that! )   

As a tutor group 7G2 are a hardworking and determined group. We have talented athletes, dancers, magicians and artists, but most of all we always have a laugh and a giggle mostly at my expense.

2019-2020 is going to be the year of giving, kindness and more Galileo wins!!!


Mr Evans - 9G1

My name is Mr Evans and I am joint Lead teacher for Science and in charge of 9G1 Tutor. We have a great mix of pupils in our tutor who work closely in their family groups to make everyone feel welcome.  I am proud to be a tutor in Galileo House as we continually work together to support each other  make our House the best in the school. Lets Go Galileo! 



Mr Gissing - 9G2

My name is Mr Gissing and I am relative newbie here at Purbrook having only just started my second year Teaching in the Maths department. Since my first day I have made to feel very welcome especially the members of the Galileo House. Not only am I lucky enough to be a part of the greatest House here at Purbrook, it is also my privilege to have the best of the tutor groups, the mighty 9G2!

Constantly striving for excellence GFGI are a close knit tutor who support each other in all aspects of school life.

With the House and Deputy House Captain and a strong cohort of students, GFGI is looking to be even better than last year taking on all challenges with a can do attitude.

Mrs Hinks - 7G1

We are so lucky in Galileo to have such wonderful role models as Mr Wilson, Mrs Bolton and Mrs Hutton.  They are true inspiration to not only pupils but also to staff and the tutor team they lead.

Our tutor group 7G1 is a small group who are working together well in the family groups we have, this academic year.  Every member of our tutor group has a different strength and it great to see that these strengths are developing to ensure that each and every member of 7G1 has an important role to play.

I am proud to be tutor for 7G1, 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 -10G2

My name is Miss Lyons and I have been working here at Purbrook Park now as a Drama teacher for the past 8 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!

10G2 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 sporty tutor group who take on challenges and are there for each other. 2019/2020 is going to be a fantastic year and we can’t wait to throw ourselves into the year ahead!

Miss Brockett - 8G1

My name I am Miss Brockett the new Lead Teacher of Religious Studies and PSHE. I am very passionate about philosophy and getting people to think outside of the box. I started at PPS in September and feel so welcomed by all the pupils and staff.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, travelling and binge-watching Netflix. I'm really looking forward to working with my tutor group to help and support them through year 8.

Mrs Morgan - 8G1

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 - 10G1


Mr Lyons

My name is Mr Lyons and I am the new science teacher here at Purbrook Park. I am delighted to have returned after doing part of my training here. Purbrook has a lovely feel about it and has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for teachers and pupils alike.

As a new tutor group, 10G1 is 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!
