CEO Welcome

I have worked in education for 32 years. During this time I have held various leadership roles including three successful Headships and as an Education Director for two Multi-Academy Trusts. More recently l was asked to be the interim CEO for a Leeds Diocese Trust before taking up my role here at St Cuthbert’s RC Academy Trust.

With an accomplished career in educational leadership, I bring a wealth of experience and vision to the St Cuthbert’s community. Previously leading numerous initiatives to enhance educational outcomes and foster a nurturing, faith-based learning environment, my profound commitment to the values and mission of Catholic education have seen remarkable improvements in pupil achievement, staff development, and community engagement.

I believe that all children, regardless of need, circumstance or background, deserve a quality education. Every child can excel and it is our job to help make this a reality. I believe this can be achieved with the high expectations that outstanding teaching and leadership bring to a school. This is successful through a transparent, honest, reflective approach, providing support and challenge but always in collaboration with colleagues.

My strategic vision includes a strong focus on ‘mission into practice’, curriculum development, continued professional development and inclusion which aligns perfectly with our Trust's commitment to excellence and holistic education. I am acutely aware that all schools are very different and continuous improvements should reflect the needs of the community as it grows, using and appreciating its unique characteristics.

In addition to my professional accomplishments, I am an active member of my Parish, and am committed to living out my faith through service and leadership.

I look forward to the future in Catholic Education with a desire to do what is right for children and by working together I believe that our children can receive the best and most rewarding educational experience possible.
