With six schools in and around Cambridge, we have developed a collaborative approach to leadership. Each Head leads their own school, whilst also engaging with colleagues to be leaders across the Foundation.
I have responsibility for everything outside teaching and learning. This involves leading all the support departments dedicated to providing the infrastructure that supports the exceptional teaching and learning across our six schools.
I particularly enjoy leading the strategic development of the Foundation, working closely with the Principal, Governors and other leaders to develop a strategy for the Foundation that ensures it continues to thrive – meeting the challenges of a constantly evolving educational, regulatory and competitive landscape.
Notable successes have been our Reach Strategy – developing a structure for the Foundation that will ensure financial sustainability – including acquisition of Madingley Pre-Prep, establishing our City Pre-Prep, merging with Dame Bradbury's in Saffron Walden and the introduction of our Diamond model in the Junior and Senior School.
I have also enjoyed creating exciting, dynamic learning spaces that reflect the creative educational ethos and meet the teaching requirements, whilst make the most of our city, town and village sites. Examples include our libraries in Junior School and at Dame Bradbury's, our innovative new build project at our Senior School and innovation rooms.
