Meet the teachers – Henry Sleath, Head of Biology

Where were you before Eltham College?

Before Eltham I taught Biology at Alleyn’s for 6 years where I was also involved in DofE and the Eco-Committee.

What have you enjoyed so far about starting here? 

I have enjoyed the genuine sense of community. Everyone has been so welcoming, and staff and pupils make this a very happy place to work.

What are you most excited about undertaking with students?

We have just started BioSoc (Biology Society), and our first session was a frog dissection just before half term. This society is led by Year 12 students, so I am looking forward to supporting them and enthusing pupils in the Lower and Middle School with the wonders of Biology!

Something students and staff may not know about you?

I have a relatively niche passion within Biology – wild brown trout! Every year I try and escape to some of the wilder regions of the UK to spend a week or so ‘researching’ them (fly fishing). This marries well with one of my other loves – hill walking; I am a qualified Mountain Leader.
