Marcus Tattersall joined Willington in 2000 after starting his teaching career in Liverpool and Lancashire. Initially recruited to the position of Head of Geography and subsequently Head of Football, Marcus is now Deputy Head. Although he has seen many changes at the school he believes a constant throughout has been the caring, friendly and happy atmosphere created by the staff, parents and most importantly, the boys. This has enabled countless boys to fulfil their potential in whatever field that may be.
Away from school, Marcus enjoys spending time with his young family. He is a lifelong Blackburn Rovers supporter and has also discussed football matters in the media. He has a passion for music (despite not being able to play an instrument) and enjoys the opportunity to don some headphones and DJ events such as the Parents of Willington Ball and Disco, if and when the time allows.

Luke Currie joined Willington as Head of Computing in 2011. In addition to teaching all pupils Computing from Year 1 up to Year 8, he also leads our Digital Leaders Programme which aims to empower children and young people to champion digital citizenship and digital creativity. Luke also can be found at our sports fields coaching football, rugby and cricket. He leads our annual Year 4 residential trip to Sayers Croft, a fun filled trip that aims to help Year 4 make that often challenging transition into the senior part of the school. Luke was appointed as Assistant Head in charge of Safeguarding in early 2017.
Luke comes from a family of footballers, the nephew of England and Sheffield United legend Tony Currie. So when Luke isn't playing football or watching his beloved Chelsea he is probably searching for his ball on a local golf course.
Assistant Head (Juniors)
Louise Maughan joined the school in 2017 as Head of Juniors, having come from a pre prep in central London where she worked as Deputy Head and Year Three teacher. Louise has previously taught in Dubai for a couple of years and loves a new adventure. She enjoys working with the junior staff and boys and watching them flourish in a caring, nurturing environment. Louise has a background in the teaching of PSHE and enjoys teaching this throughout the school.
Louise is a keen singer and a member of a local choir. She is often seen riding her bike to and from school. She also enjoys craft and will happily take on new projects that allow her to get out her sewing machine, when time allows.
Assistant Head (Academic and SENCo)
Louise worked in fashion and luxury brands PR before starting her teaching career in the UK. She originally joined Willington as a class teacher in 2009 after teaching in both state and independent sector schools in London and she was reappointed, following a maternity and childcare break, in 2013.
Louise holds a BA (Languages), a PGCE qualification and a Level 6 SENCO Diploma, as well as Montessori Diplomas in Early Years and Elementary Education. As Assistant Head (Academic and SEND) she is responsible for Extended Learning, Assessment and Reporting. Louise also works as part of the team developing the curriculum and timetable, as well as coordinating PSHCEE provision at Willington.
As a committed Montessorian, Louise believes passionately that every child is a marvel who develops at his or her own pace. Facilitating personalised learning, and a belief that every day is a clean slate underpin Louise’s teaching philosophy.
