I am a member of the Thinking, Teaching and Learning team for TSAT. I am extremely passionate about all students receiving the very highest quality experiences within the classroom and how a thinking approach supports this.

I trained as a secondary history teacher in 2001 and throughout my career have had a range of roles within schools. I have been fortunate enough to work as an Advanced Skills Teacher, a Curriculum Leader, lead on Thinking, Teaching and Learning as an Assistant Principal and as a Vice Principal at The Portsmouth Academy. Having been Principal of The Portsmouth Academy between 2019-2022 I led the school to achieve Microsoft Showcase School status and have a deep interest in how digital resourcing can support students’ learning, employability skills and also reduce teacher workload. I have considerable experience of strategic leadership and development in all aspects of school life. I am keen to ensure that all teachers have access to high quality, evidence informed CPD and coaching, and how this can support our thinking journey.
