Head Teacher Welcome

Having started here as a newly qualified teacher in 2006, I returned as Head in 2020 because it is an amazing place to work and learn. The arrival of new students and new families only enriches our community further.

As Head I commit to doing everything I can to ensure your child is safe, happy, and that they achieve. Crucial to this is the three-part relationship between school, home and – most importantly – your child. We will work closely with you to understand their needs, personalise provision and support them in realising their ambitions.

We have developed an ambitious and wide-reaching induction programme designed to make this transition as smooth as possible. We will use online resources, virtual meetings and face-to-face events to make sure your child feels comfortable and you feel informed.

One thing recent years have taught us is that young people are independent, proactive and incredibly resilient. I have no doubt that your child will – with the unerring support of school and home – draw on their experiences and go on to achieve fantastic things. I look forward to going on this journey together.
