Y5 - Mrs Farrington 2020 - 2021

Mrs Farrington


My name is Mrs. Farrington and I teach Y5. I have been teaching at Northway since 1991.  It is such a happy, family atmosphere here that once people come they usually stay! Previously I taught in Dudley in the West Midlands. I am originally from Redcar in North Yorkshire and I have always wanted to teach.
