It is a great privilege and joy for me to have been appointed as Headteacher of St Gabriel’s. I thank the Governors, Trust and Diocese for trusting me to continue leading our school in the next phase of its journey. I previously served St Gabriel’s as Deputy Headteacher, having joined in January 2020. Prior to this, I led on Teaching and Learning and SEND Coordination as Assistant Headteacher at a highly successful Catholic grammar school. My experience will drive me to continue raising our high standards and expectations at St Gabriel’s in collaboration with staff and parents/carers, confident in the knowledge that our students can meet these within our nurturing and inclusive environment, so they are ready to contribute positively to the Church and society.
