7 Joseph – Mr Irving

Hello, my name is Mr Irving and I’m a History teacher at St Benedict’s.

What’s your favourite part of being a Year 7 tutor?

My favourite part of being a Year Seven tutor is getting to meet all of the new faces in September and help you settle in over the course of the year as you find your feet in your new school.

What makes you happy?

When I’m not in school, I enjoy exercising: I like fell walking, running, and I play rugby for Keswick. I also support Spurs, Leeds Rhinos and Workington Town. When I’m not doing anything sports related, I like to play guitar and snooker.

Advice for your new tutor group:
My advice for settling into Year 7 is to get yourselves organised: try and do homework as it’s set so you can have more free time to yourselves after school. More importantly, never be too shy to ask for help in lessons, if you’re stuck and need a hand just let us know!
