I am very excited to be joining Huish Episcopi Academy on 1 September this year and look forward to building on the fantastic work that Andrew Davis has accomplished over the past 4 years.
As a parent of two secondary age children myself I understand how important it is to create a safe and happy community that allows students to thrive and reach their full potential.
Every child, regardless of background or starting point deserves the opportunity to be their best and it is our job as educators to ensure we provide students with a nurturing but challenging environment where they are supported to be aspirational and to strive for excellence. My absolute focus will be on ensuring we deliver high quality teaching, leading to successful outcomes and enhanced life chances for our students.
The extra curricular opportunities offered by Huish Episcopi enables so many students to express their individuality and creativity. I have seen the positive outcomes of involvement in these activities so will be keen to ensure that we maintain the programme of clubs and activities, whilst looking for ways in which these can be expanded even further so that more students can benefit.
I very much look forward to meeting as many parents and members of the community as possible in the coming months, particularly on the forthcoming open days.
