A little about myself

I joined the staff team at Redwood Park Academy in September 2016 when I joined as a Head of Learning for KS3. It was a fantastic opportunity to work for the Solent Academies Trust who provides such an inclusive, innovative and highly personalized curriculum for its young people and community.

I am married and a Daddy to my two energetic and fun girls. Being active has always been important to my family and we love being active and busy, whether we are at the park, local farm or on our paddle board at the local beach. Our family loves to travel and have had the opportunity to explore over 30 fantastic countries around the world and more recently, we have enjoyed travelling in our VW campervan. I love all sports and I am a very keen golfer, basketball player and I enjoy trying out new hobbies, most recently kayaking and HIIT training.

What excites you about your role within the Academy?

I relish and thrive upon working in such a dynamic environment. The Solent Academies Trust is an innovative, forward thinking and an excellent provision for the local community and I am part of such an energetic, highly skilled and unselfish team. The students are so energetic, keen and honest which are great building blocks for learning and teaching. The curriculum is so unique and personalised for what our pupils needs to take the next step in their lives. Anything is possible and the potential opportunities are endless.

Go Team Redwood!
