Deputy Head of Secondary School
It is with immense pride that I undertake the Deputy Head of Secondary role at GEMS FirstPoint School - The Villa, a community that has had a great impact on my life since 2016.
I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2010 with BA (Hons) Physical Education, before moving to the USA to lead on the delivery of Soccer Camps for young people aged 3-18; an experience that ignited my passion for international education. In 2012, I completed a PGCE in Secondary Physical Education at Edge Hill University and started teaching at an ‘Outstanding’ Academy Federation in London; I spent 4 years delivering Physical Education to Key Stage 3-5 students and led as Head of Most Able and Talented. In my time at GEMS FirstPoint School, I have delivered ‘Outstanding’ outcomes in a number of Middle and Senior Leadership roles: Head of Year, Director and Assistant Principal. I am currently completing the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and look forward to refining and implementing research-driven initiatives for your children.
As parents, students and staff, we have achieved so much together. With continued positive relationships, high expectations and application, we will work cohesively to provide the best learning environment for all of our young people: happy, well-rounded and globally aware students that have the highest aspirations and an intrinsic desire to achieve and be the best individuals that they can be.
