the red school

date. 2012-2018

city. Plymouth

We made a school. In October I was appointed as a curriculum adviser and by January I was headteacher designate. We opened the school in an open plan office with about 90 children and grew to over a 1000 in 5 years. We did not curtail to Progress 8 and kept the arts and creativity at the core of the school. Here's a link to the Edge Foundations Report which referred to us as a Beacon of Hope (p.21). Below is our inclusion in the Parliamentary Review. The school started really well and was later mixed with incredible strengths and also weaknesses. We needed time but were not given it. What I learned from this roller coaster is so valuable.
