Key roles and responsibilities: Director of KS4 (Y10 – Y11), KS4 Raising Achievement Lead, KS4 Behaviour For Learning, KS4 Attendance, Development of Literacy Policy and the Reading Curriculum.
Career overview: I qualified as a History teacher over twenty years ago and have worked in a number of schools in the south west as well as spending four years leading the History PGCE and training new teachers at the University of Exeter. Alongside classroom teaching of History, RE, Citizenship and Politics, I have been a Head of Year and a Head of Key Stage 4. Most recently I was Assistant Headteacher at another secondary school in West Dorset where I was responsible for SEND, inclusion and safeguarding.
Background and interests: At Colfox I now oversee the work of our fantastic Heads of School working with our students in Key Stage 4. Students’ life chances are best improved by having access to high quality teaching and I am excited to join a school where teachers share this ongoing commitment. I am really enjoying teaching within the English Faculty, especially as we introduce the new Reading curriculum to Years 7 and 8
