St Julians School

Meet your Progress Leader

Hello all Year 6 students and their parents and carers!

I hope that you are all safe and well. My name is Mr King and I am going to be your Progress Leader when you start in September. Obviously the restrictions currently in place stop us from having the ‘normal’ transition that we usually have. However, I have been busy finding lots of information about you all from your Primary School and have allocated you into one of the 8 forms. There are lots of detailed information on the St Julian’s School website so please check this out. We are also organising face-to-face transition sessions and you will be contacted about the arrangements for these.


Who am I?

I started teaching at St Julian’s in September 1996 as a Geography teacher. I have held various roles such as Head of Geography and Head of Hywel Dda House. This year I have been the Progress Leader for Year 11. So I am an experienced teacher who has a passion for St Julian’s. I pride myself on being enthusiastic and positive, approachable, kind and willing to go the ‘extra mile’ for all students.

I was born in Newport and went to Crindau Primary and Queens High School. I live in Newport. I am married and have two children aged 18 and 14. My interests include socialising with family and friends. I enjoy travelling and my favourite place is Tenby in west Wales! My passion is anything sport, in particular football. My Premier League team is Liverpool (supported them since I was a little boy), but I have grown in the last 5 years to follow Newport County. I am a season ticket holder and I go to all the home games and as many away games as possible.
