Having originally starting my working life in management I took the decision to make a career change and trained as a PE Teacher at High Ridge Sports College. After I completed my training I moved to Foxhills Technology College in 2004. During those nine years at Foxhills in Scunthorpe I progressed from Teacher of PE, Learning Coach, Head of Department and Lead Teacher of Learning to Assistant Headteacher. After the conversion to Outwood I became an Assistant Principal within Outwood Academy Foxhills where I worked as part of the Leadership Team to transform the academy from an Ofsted Special Measures rating to Good with Outstanding Leadership in 2015. I have recently completed my National Professional Qualification for Senior Leaders and joined Outwood Academy Danum as a Vice Principal in September 2017. My main area of responsible is Deep Experience which includes curriculum design, guided pathways, pledges and enrichment.
I am passionate about instilling a sense of high aspiration in every student to ensure that they achieve their potential.
