Deputy Head of Secondary
I began teaching during the last millennium and have travelled across the UK and the Middle East during my expansive career, specialising in Secondary English and schoolwide development of classroom excellence. Adamantly amazed by the verve and positivity of young people, I strive to motivate students to be ambitious, creative, passionate people who have a mindful and caring attitude to the world around them. Awed by the power of community, and a relentless appetite to afford the best educational opportunities for all, GFS excites me as an innovative, effectual, inclusive and caring school. Here, students and adults work together to grow, flourish and succeed on their personal learning adventures; that fossilise in school and escapade way beyond the classroom walls.
