As Assistant Headteacher, I oversee Achievement and Support across KS3 to establish a positive climate for learning for all students. Furthermore, I am the strategic lead for whole school attendance and punctuality. I aim to utilise my previous experiences in leadership and student support to continue raising standards at Rastrick High School. My goal is to create a thriving culture of excellence that provides an outstanding educational experience inspiring students to achieve excellent academic outcomes, and become great citizens within society as a whole.
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.
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.
