My name is Mr Chinery, and I teach in Opie Class. I have worked at the Iffley Academy for nearly 3 years, working mostly with a range of year 8’s and 9’s. In my spare time I like to look after my garden. I’m not much of a gardener, but I like the challenge of learning something new. I have been practicing Yoga for the last two years, and find that it is helps me relax. I also love making cupcakes playing boardgames. Opie class is named after the famous artist Julian Opie and is part of the Louvre gallery where we prioritise a) appropriate friendship groups 
b) shared learning styles 
c) shared engagement and interest levels.
