Assistant Head Mr Adam Teasdale

Head of Sixth Form

Key Roles and Responsibilities: Head of Sixth Form and Student Development and Wellbeing

Career Overview: I entered teaching following a career in museums and archives, publishing and working for the BBC. I have not looked back! I started teaching English in 2009 and became Head of Department shortly after. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of leading a successful department in the school, and I jumped at the chance to join the Senior Leadership Team and become Head of Sixth Form in 2016. I manage the Personal Development and Wellbeing aspect of the school, overseeing the PSHE and tutorial programme, as well as the assemblies and development programmes in place for all learners. I love teaching, coaching and supporting all students, but seeing students progress through the school to become sixth-formers (perhaps going on to university) is something that gives me immense satisfaction. I am proud of everything the academy does to provide an excellent education for everyone.’

Background and Interests: As a teacher of English, I love to read! As a teacher of Film, I love cinema! As for everything else, I love walking, cooking and travel.
