After completing my degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, I began my teaching career in 2007 as a teacher of Physical Education at The City School in Sheffield, which would later become Outwood Academy City. A number of years later I moved to Outwood Academy Shafton as Assistant Principal where I held roles in Deep Learning, Deep Support and Deep Experience. After 4 fantastic years at Shafton I took the role of Associate Vice Principal at Outwood Academy Carlton, leading the Deep Learning team. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work across 3 Academies within the Trust and be able to bring my experience to Carlton. Outwood Academy Carlton is a wonderful place and it is a real privilege to be able to continue to work in the borough where I grew up and with the students and families of the community we serve.
