Assistant Principal – Key Stage 5
After completing a BA (Hons) in
Business Administration at the University of Huddersfield, I was not sure what
career path I wanted to take. I secured a job as a Learning Assistant, and
quickly realised that I wanted to teach. I completed my PGCE in Economics in
1996, and I have been working in schools both in the UK and internationally
since I qualified.
I joined Bradford Academy in September
2008, as Head of Department for Business, before progressing to work on the
Post 16 team, and am privileged to now be the Assistant Principal for Key Stage
Working with Post 16 students has
always been my passion; my role allows me to have the strategic lead for the
whole key stage, ensuring that we are delivering the highest quality provision
for all our learners, with the widest range of enrichment activities and
opportunities for development.
My ambition for our students, is
that they achieve at the highest level they are able, in order to access the
higher and further education or career of their choice, and that they leave the
academy as independent young adults, equipped to deal with university, the
workplace and beyond.
