7A | Mrs Mashiter | R7 | Mitton

My name is Mrs Mashiter. I really enjoy being a Year 7 form tutor and helping the new pupils settle into Ribblesdale. We always work together as a team in form to support each other to make new friends and find our way around school. I have two children called Florence who is 5 and Edward is 2, they keep me busy! I was also brought up on a farm with lots of cows. In my spare time, I enjoy netball with my friends.


7B | Miss Smith| H3 | Mitton

Hello my name is Miss Smith and I teach English along with looking after form 7B; I have taught here for four years now. I am really excited to take on a Year 7 form and will try my best to give you the best welcome to Ribblesdale possible! I enjoy getting to know the characters in a form group so I hope you will have lots to tell me, such as fun facts about yourself and what you have been up to over summer. Teamwork makes the dream work and I like a form group who helps one another. If I don’t end up with you in my form group, I really hope that I get to teach you English and see you develop. See you in September!

7C | Miss Billington | G7 | Edisford

My name is Miss Billington. I have been working at Ribblesdale since 2015. I have just returned to Ribblesdale after having a little girl called Grace. She is so curious and into everything that she shouldn’t be into. The subject I teach is geography and I have done the occasional PE lesson too! I love spending time outdoors and exploring the country, especially the Lake District. My favourite type of food is Mexican even though I have never been to Mexico! I am looking forward to meeting all the year 7s in September and I am sure you will love Ribblesdale.

7E | Mrs Caswell | G1 | Downham

Hi, my name is Mrs Caswell and I am fortunate enough to be the form tutor of 7E which is in the best house, Downham. This is great for me as purple is my favourite colour.  I am also a science teacher so my form gets to be in a cool science lab every morning. I love travelling and trying different types of food (love biscuits!). I have an adorable black Labrador called Millie which I walk every day and have hens, three of which were hatched at Ribblesdale during science week. Looking forward to meeting you soon.


7F | Mrs Bradshaw | R15| Downham

I love being a dedicated year 7 form tutor as I get to meet you before you even start school at Ribblesdale. I enjoy hearing how excited you all are and taking you through to the next stage of your school life. I have a daughter who attended Ribblesdale so I also know what it’s like to be a parent of a pupil who attends this school. Here are some things you might like to know about me : My favourite colour – Green, season – Summer, food – Chinese, book – any autobiography, drink – water, hobbies – shopping and reading. If I don’t end up with you in my form I really hope that I get to teach you mathematics.
