I have been Head Teacher at The Priory Primary School for over 6 years and have seen the school develop and expand into a well-respected school. I have been an educationalist for over 15 years, although I first qualified and practiced as a Social Worker. I have been fortunate to work in a diverse range of schools and settings as a Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Primary Strategy Consultant and then Head Teacher of an International School in Shanghai before moving to Wednesbury. It has been through these posts that I have learnt a great deal about leadership, accelerating progress, enhancing the curriculum and creating change to improve standards. I believe that high quality teaching is at the heart of every good school and I am very much looking forward to continuing our journey towards excellence; ably supported by a very committed and knowledgeable group of governors.
