Cherry Tree Academy
I am very proud to be Head Teacher at Cherry Tree Academy.
After qualifying from Bishop Grossetete University College, Lincoln, in 2003 with a 2:1 in History and Education Studies with QTS, I spent eleven years at Orchard Head Junior, Infant and Nursery School (Pontefract) where I taught from Y2 to Y6. During this time I also worked as a Specialist Skills Tutor for WRPITT (Wakefield Regional Partnership for Initial Teacher Training). I was appointed Deputy Head in 2010 finally moving on to my first headship at Drax Community Primary School in September 2014. This was a great opportunity to experience a different setting and a different authority as head of a small, village primary where I was successful in leading the school from Requires Improvement to Good within a year. I am excited about working collaboratively within the Waterton Academy Trust and making a positive difference to the children at Cherry Tree Academy and the wider Waterton community.
