Meet the team
Mr S Richmond
Born and raised in Perth, Canada, I grew up on a large family farm where I learned young and fast about the importance of discipline and respect. I attended Bishop's University where I completed a degree in Sports Studies with specializations in Athletic Development, Health, and Psychology. Throughout my time there, I learned to balance work and play while competing with other universities in amateur golf tournaments. After graduating, I became a member of the PGA and worked as a teaching professional at the Perth Golf Course. This is where I found my love for working with and inspiring young athletes. I mainly focused my time with junior lessons and helping children understand the joys of the game. This left me wanting more, so I reached out to a nearby teaching agency with aspirations of becoming a teacher. Within 4 months, I found myself on a plane to the United Kingdom. My journey has lead me to St. John's Church School with nothing but excitement, curiosity, and the desire to become something more.
I have had a passion for sport from an early age, specialising in Football, in which I represented for Hunts County several times. I also enjoy participating in sports like tennis, running, and netball. After graduating my Sports' and Physical Education Degree at Bedford I joined the St John's family in 2012. I love inspiring our children - developing their skills, introducing them to new sports and I aim to pass on my passion and values along the way
I’m so excited about sharing my passion of sport with the children here at St. John’s. Sport has had a big impact on my life, it has brought me some great opportunities such as playing football at high level, then I went on to coaching. My goal is to make all children find a love sport.
