Gloucester Academy About Us

About our School

Welcome to Gloucester Academy I would like to introduce myself as the new Principal from September 2019. I am absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to lead improvements at Gloucester Academy. I firmly believe that Gloucester Academy should and will be the first choice of school for families in the local area. I believe that a school be the heartbeat of the local community and I will strive to make Gloucester Academy a school the local community are proud of.

Born and bred in Gloucestershire I started my teaching career in London as a teacher of Physical Education and Special Educational Needs. I moved back to Gloucestershire in 1990 to commence a 7-year role at Central Technology College as Head of Learning Support and teacher of Physical Education. Upon leaving Central I went to Bournside School and then into Special Education, before returning to mainstream education as Headteacher of The Forest High School in Cinderford.

Gloucester Academy is the fourth school I have been privileged to lead. I am passionate that all students regardless of background or disadvantage achieve the very best possible outcomes. At Gloucester Academy we have built a curriculum to meet the needs of all of our learners.

I look forward to meeting you at school events and extend an open invitation at any time to tour the school with a senior member of staff. If you wish to do this please contact school reception.
