Assistant Principal - Deep Learning
I started at Bydales School in January 2014 as Head of ICT, Business and Computing. My vision for the department is to have exciting, engaging lessons where expectations are extremely high and that students achieve their very best in an innovative and caring environment. I have particularly enjoyed our more recent delivery of the ECDL qualification, that has helped a large number of Year 11 progress to the right courses Post-16.
In September 2014 I joined the Senior Leadership Team as Associate Assistant Principal for Deep Learning, and became Assistant Principal in April 2017. This has given me the opportunity to have an impact on whole school teaching and learning to help Outwood Academy Bydales accelerate its journey towards excellence. My philosophy as a leader is very much a supportive one, be it of students on their journey through school life or of colleagues in to becoming the best they can be in the classroom, to further improve outcomes for our young people.
