I am fortunate to be the Principal of a very successful community comprehensive school in rural Gloucestershire. My career to date has given me the opportunity to work in a broad range of schools, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. I have held leadership roles in schools in the most challenging of circumstances and have a proven track record of moving these schools on to achieve outstanding performance. I have worked in large comprehensive and small independent schools, in mixed and in single-sex education. My extensive senior management experience is bolstered by the additional perspective of leading the first standalone NCSC Cyber Hub, working as a local authority adviser, serving as an inspector for Ofsted and most recently as a ‘priority lead’ in cybersecurity for Gloucestershire Police force.
