The Senior Leadership Team
The Senior Leadership Team works with the Heads of Faculty, Curriculum Leaders, Heads of House, Deans of House and other guidance and pastoral staff to ensure our school remains focussed on student achievement within a supportive and family-like atmosphere.
"The acting principal and senior leaders have provided consistent leadership during a time of change. This has been positively recognised by many staff. They ensure an orderly and supportive environment that is conducive to positive outcomes for students' wellbeing and learning. Senior leaders make sure that school systems are in place that promote and support good practice in the management of a very large school."
