Serving our community
Shaping young people's futures
I am privileged to have been an English Teacher in Yorkshire for 28 years. After running a large successful English department for seven years, I became an Assistant Principal at a new inner-city academy in Leeds in charge of progress and attainment. In 2013 I secured a position as Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning for another large secondary academy in Leeds. Whilst there I became involved in Initial Teacher Training with Leeds University and later Leeds Trinity University.
Traditional values of discipline and respect are an essential part of our ethos at the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust, as we believe these are essential for creating a safe, harmonious and nurturing environment for both staff and students alike. In particular, we take a no-tolerance attitude towards bullying.
We aim to help every single student who comes through a Rodillian Multi Academy Trust school develop the skills they need to transition into the wider world as confident, capable and resilient young adults.
In Year 8 our students study History, Geography, Religious Studies and Media Studies through the vehicle of Contextual Curriculum. Every year we assess what are the current, domestic and global issues and we study them through the lens of these subjects.
