“I like working with the Trust because I believe that our core values are truly evidenced in our work, and this translates into a passion to provide the best possible education for every child.”

I became a Headteacher in 1995 and was subsequently led four schools over a period of 20 years.  I also worked for four years as programme director in the east region centre of the National College for School Leadership. I left headship in 2016 and moved to freelance working, providing training to school leaders and working alongside HTs in schools. I joined the Trust in 2019 and my focus is on supporting the primary academies in their work and building greater collaboration.
