I am Assistant Head Teacher leading Quality of Education. I am a firm believer that as well as continuing to achieve outstanding results consistently we are all responsible in ensuring students are set up with the skills to become successful in the future. I have always been proud to work in a school with outstanding practitioners and students where everyone in the building strives to catch excellence and chase perfection. I work hard to ensure Rastrick High School allows all students to achieve and receive the very best level of care, guidance and support.
Deputy Headteacher Teaching & Learning
My role is supporting staff, to ensure ‘teaching is mostly outstanding and never less than good’. To support staff, we provide an outstanding CPD programme to ensure staff are up-to-date with the most recent research, and can apply this to their everyday practice. I also ensure we offer an outstanding curriculum for our students, and a personalised options process for Year 9 students.
Rastrick High School has been a large part of my life for the past 15 years. I originally came to the school as a trainee teacher in 2003/4 following several years in the IT industry. Throughout those 15 years I have gained a wide understanding of education through the eyes of Rastrick High school and its students and parents.
In my role as Finance Director I lead the professional financial management of the school. Responsible for providing financial planning, income generation and budget control to assist leaders in effectively managing funds to meet the school’s objectives. I maintain robust financial systems and controls to safeguard finances, ensure efficiency and value for money.
