Deputy Head Mrs Carol Duffy

Director of Key Stage 3

Key Roles and Responsibilities: Since becoming a member of the Senior Leadership Team at the school I have had many whole school responsibilities. Currently I have responsibility for educational outcomes at KS3 including pastoral care. I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead for the school and work alongside our middle leaders and the Deputy Headteacher at KS4 to ensure that our students have the best opportunities to thrive.

Career Overview: I joined the Sir John Colfox Academy in 1999 as a teacher of French and German. At this time the school had opened the new buildings and had just become a designated Language College. This brought many opportunities for the whole school but particularly in the development of languages within our curriculum. Since then I have held many roles and responsibilities within the school one of which was Head of Modern Foreign Languages for several years. I continue to teach French from Key Stage 3 through to A Level in Year 13.
