After completing a Mathematics degree at the University of Warwick I decided to become a teacher and completed my PGCE at the University of Cambridge. Since then I have worked predominantly in Bradford gaining nearly 20 years of experience. I joined Bradford Academy as a Lead Practitioner in 2011 and have progressed through various senior leadership roles to Vice Principal. Through this time I have also become a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE).
As Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning I strategically lead a team of senior and middle leaders to make sure learners are provided with an excellent standard of education. Working alongside the other Vice Principals I look to bring the vision of the Academy into reality. This is done through the performance management of staff, quality assuring teaching and learning across the Academy and providing professional development for all.
I hope our students develop into outstanding learners growing into good people when they leave Bradford Academy; becoming hardworking individuals with moral purpose who are humble and content with whatever life brings them having successful futures.
