I began my teaching career in 1999 and have since enjoyed a variety of roles and responsibilities. These included Head of Year, Head of Department and Leader of Learning before becoming an Assistant Principal at Outwood Academy Carlton. I held this position for over three years and enjoyed working in both Deep Support and Deep Experience. Being part of the leadership team that converted a failing school into a successful academy was a real privilege. In January 2019 I moved to Outwood Academy City Fields as an Associate Vice Principal where I have supported the leadership team in their journey to becoming an Outstanding provider. I am very much looking forward to my role as Vice Principal where I will be leading Deep Learning at Outwood Academy Shafton. Within this role I hope to further improve the life chances of the students at OAS by helping to provide a world class learning experience.
