All about your teachers.


Hi Everyone,

My name is Mr Armbrister and I teach Year 5.  I have been at Irk Valley for 4 years now and am loving every minute of teaching these wonderful children. 


I've been teaching for 12 years and during my time I have worked in many schools across the Greater Manchester area,  but none as fabulous as Irk Valley.  We pride ourselves on teaching to an excellent standard whilst ensuring that learning is both well thought out and engaging.


To the delight of some of you, maybe not others, I have been a Manchester United season ticket holder for 7 years and have enjoyed the majority of it.  I play golf regularly and have recently started to take a much greater care towards my health and fitness. 


I am very fortunate to be teaching the same class as last year and look forward to building their confidence before they embark on Year 6.

Hi there, my name is Mrs Liew and I am the class teaching assistant. This year will be my eleventh year working at Irk Valley, 9 of these has been in upper key stage 2.


My favourite subject in school is maths. In my spare time I like to garden and when it is raining, I enjoy painting rocks for my garden. My guilty pleasure is watching Korean dramas.


This year will be very exciting for the children - Shakespeare performance at 'The Royal Exchange'- I can't wait.

Class Timetable.
