Mrs Mower - Head of Lancer House
Lancer House earnt its name because it was the first regiment that Sir William Robertson worked with called the ‘Queens 16th Lancers’. He was only 17 at the time. Just shows you that age is not an obstacle to having aspirations and achieving great things – something I look for in all my Lancer House members!

How long have you taught at SWRA – I joined the PE team at SWRA in 2011 so I have been here for 11 years!

Movie: Hmm… The Shawshank Redemption, The notebook and most action movies.
Childhood Book: My go to books were anything Roald Dahl.
