I’m a passionate supporter of Catholic Education having seen first-hand how it can nurture children and help them become the very best of themselves. Becoming a Foundation Director enables me to support the development of all our schools into becoming shining examples of what the very best educational provision really does deliver.
My aim is to see our family of schools grow together and provide the very best educational opportunities for our current and future children. I hope all our children enjoy their time in our schools and benefit from the opportunities we provide.
