Sidney Stringer Academy

I am currently Head Teacher at Sidney Stringer Academy in Coventry.  I have completed the NPQH qualification.

I also line manage 16+, Mathematics, Science and Expressive Arts  I am responsible for our vertical tutoring pastoral system within the school. I am an outstanding teacher (rated by Ofsted in March 2012) and have passed the Ofsted lesson observation training with a distinction (Dec 2011). I have been a senior leader for 10 years; prior to this I was a Mathematics Consultant for Birmingham Advisory and Support Service and then before that Head of Mathematics.

I have experience in many areas at senior leadership level, particularly raising standards, but my many areas of expertise are curriculum design, timetabling, assessment, House/vertical tutoring system and mathematics. In the time that I have worked at Sidney Stringer the whole school results and, in particular mathematics, have risen significantly – the school is in the top 2% for value added, 5A*-C EM this year will be over the national average for the first time ever and mathematics results this year were 74% A*-C and 82% made 3 levels of progress
