Principal . I started my teaching career in 1988 and worked as a Maths teacher and then Head of Maths in a number of schools in the North West of England. I moved into a senior leadership role in 2000 and moved to Holgate School Sports College in Barnsley in 2005 as Deputy Headteacher. In my final year at Holgate, I became Acting Headteacher and was able to secure a significant rise in attainment that year. After a short spell as Vice Principal at Horizon Community College, I joined Outwood Grange Academies Trust in 2014 as Associate Principal and was deployed at Carlton as Acting Principal from September 2014. I became permanent Principal at Carlton one year later, following a hugely successful first year.
It is a real privilege to lead Outwood Academy Carlton and to be part of the OGAT family. I am incredibly proud to be the Principal of such a fantastic academy; it really is the best job in the world as every day I get to see wonderful students doing great things taught and supported by a dedicated, committed and talented staff.
