Having spent 25 years working in the education sector, I was delighted to be appointed as CEO of FMAT in February 2020. Previously, I have held a wide range of senior MAT and school leadership positions, including Deputy CEO of a mixed phase MAT, Executive Head of a group of secondary academies and Principal of a secondary Church Academy. During these roles, I have led on many areas including school improvement, quality assurance, curriculum development and finance. Originally, I started out as a Chemistry teacher in Nottinghamshire, having previously honed my chemistry skills for a year at ICI.
I have always highly valued the opportunity to develop others and have also committed time and energy to coaching and delivering training sessions including some at national conferences.
It is only when we come together and combine our collective energy that we will genuinely benefit the communities we serve.
