Executive Director: Schools and Operations
BEd (Hons) MSc Education Management. I worked briefly in the State sector for some years but the vast majority of my career has been spent in the Independent sector. I have been a head teacher in three independent schools, the largest being 900 pupils. Since 2005 I have had responsibility for the 4 schools in our group supporting and advising the Heads, Senior Leadership Teams and Governors. In addition I have responsibility for lettings, estates, marketing, strategic planning, academic achievement, recruitment at senior levels, finance and budget setting across all three sites. I have in all three headships increased rolls and surplus figures operationally. We now aim to produce a 20% surplus on all operations across the group allowing us to further invest and expand. I have been fortunate to work with schools across the ISA membership in the UK and overseas in the Middle East and China . I am a registered inspector and serve on the ISA finance committee.
