“I believe that what happens in the classroom is the most important aspect of school life and as Principal I will support teachers to ensure all students are working to the best of their ability and reaching their true potential both academically and personally. I have always believed in a student-centred approach to teaching and learning. By showing an interest in students, ensuring that they know you care, developing their self-esteem and praising their progress they enjoy learning and become hungry for more. I believe that by involving students, parents and the wider community in the running of the school, we can create the best environment for our students to excel”.
