Meet the rest of the team


The Health and Safety Advisor was very pleasant, informative and put the jargon into plain English, making it easy to understand. He was helpful and friendly and gave an in-depth account of all our health and safety requirements. A detailed report was given at the end of the inspection which was very useful and allowed me to comply with the legal requirements. Additional support has been offered since the inspection and advice has been given. Thank you very much.

Linda Lynn Cook has provided invaluable support and guidance supporting our school improvement work around SEND. She has lead a number of SEND reviews and her insight and knowledge means we have been able to pinpoint our successful practice but also develop comprehensive action plans confident in the knowledge that we are focusing on the right areas to ensure the correct provision for our most vulnerable students. Linda's style is incredibly supportive and she is able to coach members of staff to ensure that they are able to communicate the knowledge they hold but she is able to work with them to understand their next steps without undermining their confidence. This means that reviews are approached in a positive manner and result in a team sharing a vision knowing how to move the school forward.
