Born and bred in London, I moved up to Leeds in September 2019 to become Vice Principal and Head of Primary. I was enticed by the prospect of creating GSAL primary and working at such a wonderful school with an illustrious history. Previous to this I was head of two independent schools in London and have also worked in the state sector in a range of leadership roles. I am passionate about primary education and encouraging confidence, independence and a love of learning in the young people I work with. I have two children, both of whom are in the senior school and my family are very proud that they are following in the tradition of my mother who is an old girl of Leeds Girls High School.
