Executive Head's Welcome


Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

It is with great pride that I assume the role of Executive Headteacher here at Christ the King Catholic School.  It is an honour to lead and serve our Catholic community as we look to grow the partnership between our two schools - Christ the King, Amesbury, and St Osmund's in Salisbury.

Our Senior Leadership Team (see staffing structure via the ‘Our Staff’ tab) will be visible to you on a daily basis, but as Executive Headteacher it is my responsibility to oversee and develop the work and leadership at both schools.  You will see me both here and at St Osmund's, working approximately 2 to 3 days per week at each school.

To tell you a little about myself - I am an experienced headteacher entering my 6th year as a headteacher in Wiltshire.  Prior to this, I have served as headteacher, deputy headteacher and leader of Teaching and Learning, and class teacher at various Catholic schools in the north of England.  As a parent of two school-age children myself, I understand the balance between school life and that of being a parent and I am committed to strengthening the partnership between us.  When we work in harmony with each other, our children will flourish.

I believe in the highest possible standards of achievement, and I am determined that the very best can be achieved by our teachers, children and therefore Christ the King school.  Together with our expert leadership team, and an unwavering belief that all children can achieve (John 10:10), I know we can achieve great things.

Psalm 133:1
Behold how good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
