Our skills have been developed over many years in school through experience of headships, leadership and management and advanced skills teaching. We believe in engaging with all stakeholders and therefore several of us sit on governing bodies across the region.
As a team we value continuing professional development, and as a result of this several of the team are qualified to Masters level in Education.
