Mr Danny Quinlan, Teacher of Mathematics
Mr Quinlan moved to the Island when he was 10, joining Sandham Middle School in year 6 before moving up to Sandown High School where he stayed to take Maths, Further Maths and Physics A-Levels. From there he went to the University of Reading to study a degree in Mathematics, but decided to leave after 2 years to study Secondary Mathematics Education at the University of Brighton to dedicate himself to becoming a maths teacher. He then returned to Reading and taught in a secondary school with sixth form before deciding to come back to the island in January 2018.
Outside of school, Mr Quinlan is active in scouting and helps to run a local troop with main adventurous interests being archery and rifle shooting. He also spends (apparently) far too much time playing video games on his PC and is a big fan of Disney and Harry Potter.
Mr Quinlan spent a year looking into global maths pedagogy and the psychology behind learning, before doing his teaching placements in Berkshire and graduating in 2016. He taught in a secondary school in Reading where he was the specialist in Mechanics and Decision maths at A-Level, whilst also being KS3 Co-ordinator for the maths department.
