Welcome to the Gloucester Academy website. As Interim Principal, I am committed to ensuring all our students enjoy access to the very best education in a safe, secure environment led by outstanding, passionate staff.
As a father of two, I am fully aware of the many challenges faced by young people in today’s society. Ensuring our pupils develop the skills, qualities, and characteristics to flourish in all aspects of their life is essential. That’s exactly what Gloucester Academy will focus on providing with renewed energy and vigour.
I have worked as a teacher for nearly 20 years in schools across Walsall, Gloucester, and Bristol. This includes working as part of the team who took The Peak Academy from an Ofsted ‘Inadequate’ grade to an Ofsted ‘Good’ within just months of joining The White Horse Federation.
I’m truly excited to use my experience and passion to drive the development of Gloucester Academy forward. I’ll be leading from the front, working closely with our staff and community to bring about rapid change. Of course, I won’t be acting alone.
The New Gloucester Academy Team
As Interim Principal, I am surrounded by a brilliant team of dedicated staff and a skilled senior leadership team who all share the common goal of ensuring our pupils receive an exceptional education.
I encourage you to visit our staff page where you can learn more about the superb people working in joint ambition to help Gloucester Academy fulfil its potential and become the school of choice for young people in our community.
Julian Morgan will also be offering his support as Secondary Director of the White Horse Federation. Along with Julian, we have an expert team of staff from the Trust making sure we excel in all areas from Finance and HR to ICT and catering.
Driving Gloucester Academy Forward
To say that Gloucester Academy is in good hands is an understatement. Together, with the support of Julian and our existing senior leadership team, I am confident in our ability to deliver excellent education for young people at Gloucester Academy.
I look forward to working with all staff, students, parents, and carers during this phase of Gloucester Academy’s journey.
