She has dedicated her working life to improving educational provision in village college settings, some of this completed through her previous work as an advanced skills teacher.
More recently her work has been commended by HMI inspectors as she leads the school from special measures.
“Leadership and management, including governance, have been completely transformed since the last inspection. The inadequacies found at the last inspection have been addressed. The new Principal has steered the academy’s recovery with remarkable determination and assurance” – OFSTED Dec 2015
