Mesty Croft Academy

Believe and Achieve


Miss R Kelsey - Assistant Headteacher

My name is Rachael Kelsey and I am currently in my ninth year of teaching. I have been at Mesty Croft for just over three years and I absolutely love teaching the children at this school. Currently, I teach in Year Two, lead and manage Key Stage One and lead English across the school.


My favourite subject to teach is English because I love watching how children can develop and grow in reading and writing. In school, I’m best known for my love of minions – they have taken over my classroom. I’m also known for my love of directing school productions as I believe this is where all children are given an opportunity to shine. So far at Mesty Croft we have performed ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Bugsy Malone’- hopefully next year we will put on another production for all to see.


Outside of school, I am rather busy with my twin daughters but when I have a spare moment or two I enjoy taking my lovely dog Cayenne for walks, watching movies and going to the theatre (I just love musicals).
