Welcome to St Aldhelm's Academy

I have been the Principal of three different schools and the Executive Principal of another. My experience has shown me that there is no one way to organise or run a school - because all serve different communities, have different local areas and backgrounds and different strengths on their staff. There are, however, national standards of achievement and excellence and we must ensure our students do as well at St. Aldhelm’s as the children do anywhere else, no matter the differences in location. I am working with the Sponsors, Governors and the staff to ensure that we develop the expectations, teaching and learning which will enable our children to succeed. We will include the best and most positive aspects of the current school as we move on to plan essential changes for the future. I am excited and pleased to be able to lead St. Aldhelm’s through this transitional phase of its journey. The Academy has a committed Governing Body, the students are well-behaved, polite and eager to learn and to do well. There is an experienced and highly effective senior leadership team and an enthusiastic staff who are very keen to ensure that they deliver interesting lessons which engage children in learning. There is a real ‘buzz’ about the school as the staff plan for the next school year. I am committed to leading the Academy into and through the next school year until the time arrives to appoint a permanent Principal.

I look forward to meeting many of you at Academy functions and parents evenings.
