Ben Paxman

Headteacher: Totley Primary School

Ben was appointed to Headteacher at Totley Primary School in September 2018, having worked his way through the ranks from starting as a class teacher at the school in 2001.

He is very proud to lead a fantastic team of dedicated professionals who are 100% committed to the children and families at Totley.

In terms of his values as a headteacher, Ben says "I believe in holding the highest of aspirations for children in all aspects of their development and in nurturing the growth of happy, well-rounded and balanced young people who are more than ready for the next stage in their education." His highlight in the role has been the succesful opening of the expanded school. 

Outside of Totley, Ben is a busy dad of 2 lively girls. He loves to read, play guitar, run and juggle (but not simultaneously!).
