Mrs C Bavister, Assistant Head & Class 11

I began teaching at Oldway in Sept 2000 as a year leader with responsibility for music, having previously taught in Luton for seven years.


I currently lead Year 3, am a strategic board member for the Torbay Music Hub, am an Artsmark Associate and lead the Primary Teacher Music Network on behalf of the Torbay Teaching School Alliance.


I’m passionate about the Arts, Outdoor Learning and ensuring all children have a broad and balanced education that will prepare them for the future.


My husband, Richard, teaches in a local secondary school and we have two teenage boys - one who is shortly heading off to University (surely I’m not that old!). In my spare time, I pursue a wide range of interests including: involvement with local theatrical groups, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, cycling, travelling as well as spending time with my family.
