Helen Green

Teacher & L2L Coordinator

I am the Redwood Class Teacher and the Learning to Learn (L2L) Co-ordinator.

I have been an SEN teacher since 2012, working in PMLD classes and as SEND Specialist Teacher at Great Ormond Street Hospital School. I’m also a Makaton Tutor and have a particular interest in Engagement for Learning.  I moved to Cornwall in January 2020 and am loving living near the beach whilst finding time to research and write.

I have a masters in Children’s Literature and Creative writing, so storytelling and reading are my favourite things to do. I love all things sensory, if it lights up and makes funny noises I will love it! You will often find me singing or making a creative mess.

I have a tortoise called Nora and I used to work with Singing Hands, they are great!

Michelle Smith

HLTA & and Communications Lead

I am the HLTA attached to Post 14 Provision at Doubletrees.

My name is Michelle and I’ve been at Doubletrees of 18 years. I love communication and am the communications lead across the school. I also love sensory activities: I enjoy making a mess while doing sensory learning but I hate having dirty hands.


Phil Williams

Teacher.  Maths and STEM Coordinator

I am the teacher of Elm Class.

I really enjoy teaching Maths and I’ve a keen interest in art. Anything to do with Maths, Engineering or Science and DT are areas of the curriculum, that I find the most exciting. I believe this is due to my time as an aircraft engineer in the Fleet Air Arm. I once got seasick on a very calm day.

I’m a blackbelt at Karate and I like to think that I’m a secret chef.

I have worked at Doubletrees since Sept 2019, first as a classroom teacher and now the 14 to 19 coordinator, with additional responsibility for the development of our Work Related Learning and Careers provision. I love the challenge and the joy of working with Doubletrees students and their families.

I am a now a not so secret amateur artist; reproducing my favourite paintings whilst teaching myself to paint. It is really calming, and I have sold a few too.
