Stuart Gent
Founder & South Lead

Stuart is a qualified teacher and set up PrimeVR in 2017 after finishing on the Google Expeditions Pioneer Programme. Since starting PrimeVR, Stuart has been into over 100 schools across the country delivering VR workshops across KS2 and KS3.

“I love seeing and hearing the awe and wonder that VR creates in the classroom. It really helps to bring a topic to life and immerse pupils in a different world”.


Tom Yates
Co-founder

Tom is a serial entrepreneur and loves all things digital. After seeing the potential of VR in the classroom, Tom jumped at the opportunity to help Stuart set up PrimeVR. Tom is responsible for maintaining this slick website and ensuring people can find us on online.

“I wish VR was around when I was at school. It’s difficult for children to understand something when they’ve no idea or experience of a topic. I think VR is a great way of overcoming this"


Matt Short
Midlands Lead

Matt is an experienced primary school teacher and Computing subject lead who has always been interested in finding new and innovative ways for engaging pupils in their learning. He joined the PrimeVR team in 2018 after seeing the positive impact VR can have in the classroom.

"After hearing the 'wow's from pupils when they look into the headsets, I knew the potential virtual reality could have to ignite pupils' curiosity like nothing I had experienced before in the classroom. From that moment, I knew I had to join the team and spread that awe and wonder to other schools."

Oliver is a qualified primary school teacher and has experience of teaching across all of KS2. After completing his PGCE course at Bath Spa University, Oliver worked in a number of schools across the North West. He is passionate about delivering engaging and practical lessons that help to bring the curriculum to life.

"I've been teaching for over five years and I've never seen technology deliver the level of engagement that virtual reality does. It really helps to bring a topic to life and inspire pupils with their writing"
