GEMS Cluster Lead & CEO/Principal
I have had the privilege of working for GEMS Education as a Cluster Lead, Cambridge Brand Leader and as the CEO & Principal at the GEMS Cambridge International School – Abu Dhabi for the last 4 years. With 25 years experience in education, and 15 of these at Principal level and above, I was previously an Education Director for one of the largest UK Multi Academy Trusts having responsibility for standards in 32 academies across the 3 – 18 age range.
I have also had the honour of being a National Coach for the English Schools’ FA and worked as qualified Ofsted Inspector whilst in the UK. I have coached and mentored over five hundred graduates on the SSATs Executive Headteacher programme between 2010 and 2016, and I have also presented at a national level being part of the GL Assessment National Development Group.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Management and my approach to school improvement is a selfless one, that is totally child, parent, and staff centred.
