Principal's Welcome



It is a great privilege and responsibility to be the first  principal of the new Bath Studio School.  I have been a teacher for 26 years and have held a range of successful leadership roles from Headteacher to Head of Sixth form over the last 16 years across England.  

I believe that all young people, no matter their background should have learning opportunities that provide them with the foundations to lead successful and satisfying lives. I want the Bath Studio School to be a school which transforms lives; a school where every student feels great pride to be part of the Studio School community; a school which captures the imagination of young people and provides them with the greatest range of choices once they leave. Now nearly three years old, with our first set of exam results behind us, we are growing in confidence and popularity and  establishing a solid reputation in the city.

As a parent myself, with one child in primary and two in secondary, I understand  how important it is to make the right choice for your child’s education.The Bath Studio School  presents a new choice for young people and parents.  I can reassure you that with my  colleagues, the backing of our trust and employer partners, we are on course to establish a first class new school for the city.

Please contact me at  or call me on my direct line 01225 831930 for any further information or to arrange an appointment.I would be delighted to hear from you and share my passion for the school.
