Having taught at sixth form colleges and universities I was ready for a fresh challenge. Struck by how Devon Studio School’s ethos matched my own, I wanted to be part of it. At last, a truly holistic education where staff support one another with the same vision: instilling the right values in students to enable them to prosper personally, vocationally and academically. Somewhere that understands young people come from different places and need different things.
I have an MA (Dist) in Language, the Arts and Education. When not stretching young minds, I’m working on a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing, publishing poems and stories, and writing a play. I also relish swimming in the sea, running the hills and riding my bicycle very fast.
