Senior Leadership Team

I began my teaching career as a teacher of English, at The Priory School in Hertfordshire, after which I was promoted to Head of English at St Thomas More Upper School in Bedford. Recently I held the position of Lead Teacher for English and Academy Literacy Coordinator at Excelsior Academy in Newcastle, before joining Castle View Enterprise Academy.

I believe good Literacy and English skills are a passport to learning. Without them, pupils cannot access the rest of the curriculum and their life chances are severely curtailed. I aim to help all pupils achieve these necessary skills needed to unlock the magic of the curriculum and the joy of life-long learning.
