Senior Leadership Team
Chris Yew was born in Liverpool and then moved across the Mersey at a young age. Chris has always been a keen sportsman and at an early age dreamed of a career in football. A couple of serious injuries before the age of 16 put a halt to this dream and after contemplating a future in the armed services or as a fire fighter, Chris decided upon a career as a PE teacher and went on to study a degree in PE, Sport and Dance at John Moores university in Liverpool. Once qualified, Chris started his teaching career in a special school in Liverpool that catered for students with complex learning and behaviour difficulties. After a year, Chris then wanted to begin his career in mainstream education and after gaining experience in a couple of schools, took the job of PE teacher at Malbank in 2010.

Chris soon realised that Malbank was the school that he wanted to work in on a long-term basis and also that he had a passion for the pastoral side of teaching. Alongside teaching PE, Chris took on the role as progress manager in key stage 3 and took his year group all the way through to their GCSE examinations in year 11. Chris then took on the role of head of key stage 4 at Malbank and held this position for 4 years before obtaining the role of assistant head with overall responsibility for behaviour, standards and safeguarding.
A fitness fanatic and keen Liverpool supporter, Chris now spends most of his free time with his young family who he is extremely proud of. He enjoys playing football, going to the gym and watching his young boys participating in the sports that they enjoy. He also enjoys nature and being outdoors. Chris is also relishing the opportunity of leading the Brereton Bears in his new role as assistant head.
