Principal - Secondary
I qualified originally as an
English and Drama teacher after spending time studying Irish literature in Dublin
and performing as part of a theatre group. After experiencing middle
leadership, I became an Advanced Skills Teacher and National Lead Practitioner
for the SSAT. I started working at the Academy when we first opened and spent a
year at the predecessor school as an AST before promotion into several areas
including managing the house system and vertical tutor groups, staff training
and leading whole school teaching and learning.
I am the Secondary Principal for
the Academy and spend my time managing staff and monitoring the culture. I ensure
that there is a shared strategic vision and a lot of my time considers the join
between the different leadership areas and the identification of whole school
priorities in our journey to outstanding.
My ambition for our students is that
they realise that the limitations they may face with regards to unlocking their
potential can be challenged and removed. With hard work and determination the
possibilities are endless.
