I am genuinely delighted and excited to be the Executive Principal of The Grange Academy.
I have worked in Runcorn for the almost 25 years and during this time I have seen many changes in the world of education, but the one aspect of it that has always remained is how proud I am to be part of this community. While there have been some characters, the young people I have met, taught and watched grow have always ensured that no two days are the same and they have driven me to always want the absolute best for them. However, I must admit I do feel a tad old when new arrivals to school greet me with, “You taught my mum and dad!”

 Leading The Grange Academy is such as exciting prospect. It is not often you get to help shape a child’s education, from nursery age through to their teenage years, by working with a highly skilled and dedicated team to ensure they leave with qualifications and experiences to succeed in their chosen pathways. I felt that this role was one that I could not ignore. Having worked with the school relatively closely in the past, I can see some real opportunities to build on the great practice that already takes place in the school every single day.

I really look forward to getting to know you all over the coming months. There will be plenty of opportunity for us to meet, so please do come and say hello, as this is our school and my door will always be open.
