"Having been involved in so many areas of the school, I know it extensively and truly believe in its ethos. The school is its people and the relationships between all those people is key. It is very important to me is that the staff really know the pupils, make time for them, value them as individuals, care about their happiness and aim to develop the thoughtful, caring side of their characters as well as their intellect and ambition. At the same time I want all staff to thrive in their respective roles, to enjoy working together, to look out for each other and to know they are valued members of the school."
