My experience in understanding what is needed in order to provide a clear path to learning began in my teenage years and my own experiences. I had a somewhat chaotic homelife which started with living in a house with my parents, 4 brothers, 2 sisters, grandad , uncle, godmother and her life partner. It was difficult to get a word heard and as such, I became quite introverted and unsure of what my own aspirations were. No-one ever stopped to have a chat about it. In many ways, I was lucky to have an enquiring mind and have always been eager to learn but as the bullies set in because of my work ethic, there was confusion and chaos in both my home and school environments.
I was also fortunate to have some of the most determined, big hearted , intelligent teachers who noticed my unhappiness and took me aside and helped me to overcome the blockages that were developing within my life. In relaxing (somewhat) the typical learning model, I was able to see which way was up and to proceed in that direction. I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant before re-training as a teacher over a decade ago.
I believe that my purpose is to help young people to develop a love of learning through understanding what it can really do for them. This is built through a positive learning environment which I have received much commendation for and knowing that everything that they do will have a result which is for them and to help to develop a better life for them. All staff are DBS checked and trained to make time in sessions to talk about the week and what has happened and to offer advice where necessary. We do have a strict safeguarding policy.
