7 years' experience

I have been teaching drama in Birmingham for the past 6 years with various roles leading departments and faculties, with my latest role being the Director of Learning for Creatives Arts. USI’s vision of instilling in the young people the core values of kindness, respect, passion for learning and the pursuit of excellence is something I also believe that every young person should have within them. I’m excited to be involved in USI’s journey as an Assistant Head and I'm eager to begin ensuring that our staff are well equipped in supporting our young people to unlock their full potential and achieve their dreams.
