I feel proud and privileged to have been headteacher governor at Mary Rose Academy for the past 10 years. Mary Rose celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and during that time the school has gone from strength to strength and is now recognised nationally as a centre of excellence.
I am a member of the Board of Governors for all 3 schools in our Trust as well as The Solent Academies Trust Board and this enables me to work with all the teams of staff and governors to ensure that our pupils get the very best education possible.
My role has developed significantly over the past few years and in addition to being Executive Headteacher for Mary Rose, Cliffdale Primary and Redwood Park, I lead the Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance. I have recently been appointed to the South-East England and South London Headteacher Board, working closely with the Regional Schools Commissioner. All of these roles enable me to keep abreast of current education developments as well as ensuring that Mary Rose has the high profile that it truly deserves.
