Helen Port

Trust Leader for Science

BSc (Hons.) Chemistry with Business and the Environment / Postgraduate Certificate in Education, Secondary Science

"Equipped with five senses, humans explore the universe around them and call the adventure Science."

I started at what is now The de Ferrers Academy in 2005 as an NQT. With fabulous CPD provided by various leadership teams over the years, I have undertaken many roles within the Academy which include Head of Chemistry, KS5 Leader, Lead Teacher for the Academy, Director of Learning for Science and now my latest role as Trust Leader for Science.

I completed my NPQSL in 2017 which is another example of the investment in staff de Ferrers strive for.  De Ferrers – both the school and the Trust -  are great organisations to be part of and my length of service is testament to this.
