After competing my PGCE at Northumbria University I joined the STEP Academy Trust who specialised in rapid school improvement. I worked for 2 schools in Croydon who successfully transitioned from ‘special measures’ to ‘good’ within a very short space of time. I continued my teaching career in an inner London primary school before joining Brookwood as Deputy Headteacher in 2016. Following our successful Ofsted in September 2018, I was delighted to be appointed Head of School, and more recently Headteacher, where I look forward to delivering even more success. 

Inspired by some great leaders, I have discovered an enthusiasm and love for teaching which I want to share with others. I believe the key to success and continuous improvement is through teamwork with everyone playing their part to maximise the impact on the children in our care.
