Subject specialist

Vicki Risianova

After 4 years of being a TV and radio presenter, Vicki headed to the secondary classroom where she spent 12 years teaching Design and Technology as well as PE. Working as a subject leader, she ran D&T tournaments and weekly clubs to get her students involved while also building stronger links with feeder schools to understand how these skills were developed in younger children. This inspired her to move to the prep school, where she has spent the last 4 years. She loves creating engaging lessons and projects for her pupils as well as running a baking club and school-wide ECO projects.

Vicki has created a topic on Structures in Design & Technology and her free lesson features ‘Making a Baby Bear’s Chair’ for KS1 pupils.
