About the Principal

Jim has wide ranging experience of leadership in several schools both in Kent and Norfolk. His Masters in Curriculum Studies focused on accredited teacher-led school improvement, and alongside his lecturer, Jim led a pioneering collaboration between his school and Canterbury Christchurch College.

Having completed his NPQH Jim went on to have 13 years of successful headship in two Norfolk high schools, the first being designated a High Performing Specialist School during his penultimate year. This was followed by eight years leading, City of Norwich School (CNS), a large 11-18 city school where his enthusiasm for the arts in education resulted in a unique partnership with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Both schools saw significant improvements in outcomes and were judged good with outstanding features during his tenure.
