I have been in Education for 20 years in the West Yorkshire region working at schools in Leeds, Bradford and Rastrick. Within this time I have been a senior leader for 13 years, six years as an Assistant Head Teacher working in for Support, five years as a Deputy Head Teacher in charge of Raising standards and currently as the Associate Headteacher of Rastrick High school. I am a strong believer in a student-centred school with the belief that everyone has the right to learn and flourish in a safe and engaging environment. This is driven by outstanding practice in teaching and learning and a collective culture of support for all.
Assistant Headteacher Standards
During my time in education, through working in two multi academy trusts, I have gained experience of a number of educational settings and contexts in a range of capacities including senior leadership.
Assistant Headteacher for Teaching and Learning.
Since becoming a teacher eighteen years ago I have worked in a variety of different school across Yorkshire. I joined Rastrick High School in 2016 as the first Director of Humanities and have since moved into the role of Assistant Headteacher for Teaching and Learning.
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.
