I am a mother of three and have been in teaching for twenty years.
I am a languages and social sciences graduate and love to travel and cook.
I took the headship at Bowes in 2013 and have been head of both schools since 2020. This was confirmed in February 2021 as a permanent arrangement, appointing me executive head.
I am passionate about education opportunities being provided to all children regardless of their background or ability and have taken my schools through OFSTED inspections being judged outstanding at Bowes and previously outstanding in my Earl Years setting in the midlands.
I am originally from the northeast and am very happily settled here in Teesdale which is a beautiful place to live.
