Headteacher Biography

For many parents and carers it is important to know that the Headteacher of their child's school is suitably experienced and will ensure that everyone continues to grow, learn and flourish. I have a unique educational leadership experience. Having worked for seventeen years within two high performing secondary schools 2014 saw me take the role of Headteacher at Salfords Primary School, which had been placed into Special Measures.

As the former Deputy Headteacher at a local outstanding secondary school I know what it takes to provide an exceptional education for all in a comprehensive school system. My previous roles include: Curriculum Leader, Assistant Headteacher - Raising Standards, Head of Year and Head of House.At  Merstham Park, I will utilise my experience and expertise to provide a great school experience for all students. 

My leadership experience within both secondary and primary will help us shape the best of both sectors to ensure our provision is driven by excellent practice in learning and teaching to ensure the best possible outcomes for all students.

Learning is central to our ability to function within tomorrow’s world. Our students will be equipped with the tenacity to pursue their dreams and ambitions to become successful citizens of the future. Bringing the real-world to life through practical exploration and a project based curriculum will be a priority for student learning at Merstham Park. We will welcome parents to be true partners in their children’s education, working with us to enable all students to achieve beyond their expectations.

We will provide our students with outstanding resources and support in every aspect of school life from learning and teaching to staffing and subject specific expertise. The community will benefit from the brand new state of the art facilities tailored to develop students’ unique skillsets. We will furnish the school with inviting and interactive classrooms and learning environments, providing fresh opportunities to explore the unknown. This will all be informed by up to date research and initiatives delivered by enthusiastic and passionate staff committed to providing your children with the very best education experience. I look forward to taking the next step with you on our journey through the next stage of your child’s education.
