Wendy Tomes (NLE)

Executive Principal Sidney Stringer Multi-Academy Trust
As an NLE I can offer the support of both myself and other very skilled and talented leaders who work at Sidney Stringer. I have 8 years of experience as a Head Teacher of two very different schools. I led one out of special measures and moved another from good to outstanding.

Sidney Stringer is a large secondary school with a very high percentage of PPG pupils based in the centre of Coventry in an area of high deprivation. This year we were the only secondary school in Coventry to be given the Pupil Premium award. The school is in the top 6% of schools in the country for pupil progress and has been for the last 3 years.

During the last few years I have established the Sidney Stringer Multi Academy Trust and also successfully bid to open a new free school which will admit its first pupils in September 2015.
