“I have the proven experience, knowledge, enthusiasm and determination to make a difference for the young people and the community I serve. I have worked in a range of leadership positions within the primary, secondary and local authority, always seeking excellence. My passion is teaching and learning and I am well versed in research informed strategies, that make a demonstrable impact on the outcomes for our young people. I am delighted with our 2022 Ofsted Report, and whilst there is still lots to do, there was recognition that we have made real progress, and continue to do so” (Paul Prest, 2022).
