CEO – The Bishop Anthony Educational Trust
I moved to Oxfordshire in the mid 1990’s, carrying out advisory work for the Local Authority on behaviour and inclusion, which led to me becoming a primary headteacher. I returned to Herefordshire as a Local Authority School Improvement Advisor and am an accredited OFSTED inspector.
There is no such thing as a typical day as CEO of the Trust. We cover a very large geographical area and so I can have a 15 minute trip to work or an hour and half journey. Our schools come in all shapes and sizes and the challenge this brings makes my job both exciting and rewarding. I try and visit the schools regularly, balanced with seeing the central team in Ludlow.

Working with a very talented group of professionals who amaze and encourage me every day.
To stop the constant change and allow those who really know how to make a positive difference to the lives of the children and young people to make the decisions.
