Outside of work
In my role as Director of Secondary Education I am responsible for the continued improvement and success across all of our Secondary Schools. From 2006 until 2010, I was the Headteacher at Gloucester’s Central Technology College, which later merged with another school to become Gloucester Academy. Within 15 months at the school I took it from ‘Notice to Improve’ to being rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.
I have a real understanding of the community in which you live. With a drive to help make Gloucester Academy become the school of choice in your area, we aim to attract the greatest teachers to provide the best education for your children.
I have over 11 years’ experience in leading and transforming schools. In 2011 I took Fortismere School in Muswell Hill, London, from the rating of ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’ within the first 15 months of headship. It is now recognised as one of the best secondary schools in the country.
