Mrs J Owens

I am a Teacher of Science, specialising in Biology. I started teaching at Sedgefield Community College in 2004. I rapidly gained promotion within two years of teaching to Second in Science and then to Head of Science. 

I joined CVEA in 2009 as Director of Science. This involved the leadership and management of the Science staff and zone. In 2012, I took on a temporary SLT position. I was made Assistant Vice Principal in charge of Teaching and Learning in 2013 and Vice Principal in 2018 with a vast role encompassing many aspects of school life to gain wider experience.  

From January 2021, I took over as Head of School and from September 2021 I am now the new Principal. This is a post I have aspired to move into following the hard work, dedication and commitment to CVEA I have shown over the years. 

I always strive to achieve my personal best and aim to provide an outstanding educational experience for your child.
