“It was an inspirational family member who attracted me to this profession, helping me realise that good teaching can make such a difference to the lives of many young people.”

“There are many rewarding aspects to this role, especially when I see confidence and leadership within my teams. As a manager, it is important from the outset to bring all staff together and develop a shared and clear understanding of where the school is in terms of its profile within the community, attainment and achievement and curriculum development.”

“Becoming an Acting Headteacher by default was a daunting thought, however I was surprised at the fact that regardless of the challenges, no problem is unsurmountable. To anyone considering career progression into Headship, don’t be daunted by perceived problems – there are always solutions and support.”
