Across our schools, we have developed a collaborative approach to leadership. Each Head leads their own school, whilst also engaging with colleagues to be leaders for the whole Foundation.
I strongly believe that school should provide a rich, varied and challenging education in a supportive environment, allowing students the opportunity to realise their full potential. I want our boarders to enjoy the independence that living away from home brings whilst feeling comfortable and secure. I feel fortunate to live in boarding myself as I get to interact with aspirational young people from all over the world every day.
I taught in Abu Dhabi for ten years then, having been a Deputy Head in North London, moved to Cambridge to become a Deputy Principal nine years ago. For the past ten years, I have also been an ISI inspector which I enjoy as it affords the opportunity to observe practice in a wide range of schools throughout the country.
