Having trained as a teacher of Geography in Sheffield I began my career as a teacher of Humanities in Derbyshire. I gained promotion to Head of Humanities at South Leys Business and Enterprise College in Scunthorpe where, over the course of 13 years, I then progressed to Director of Curriculum and Assistant Head.
My next post was as Deputy Headteacher in Valley Comprehensive School in Worksop. After conversion to Outwood Academy Valley I remained as Vice Principal and was made Acting Principal in September 2013. I have now taken the welcome opportunity to work back in Scunthorpe as Principal at Outwood Academy Foxhills.
