I have worked at Outwood Academy Shafton since the building opened in 2012. I began my teaching career at another school within our community, Willowgarth High School, in 2010 as a PE teacher;. I have a passion for the students in our community and, in particular, for Post 16 choices, careers and raising the aspirations of students. This year I am excited to take on the role of Associate Assistant Principal for HeppSY and Careers. I will be working closely with DEEP Learning and embedding careers within the curriculum/classroom and the wider academy; I am especially looking forward to bringing careers advice and opportunities to all year groups.
