I was born in Hartford and attended Hartford High School and Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College. I went on to study for a BEd Hons at Liverpool Hope University College and began my teaching career at a primary school in Runcorn. I later moved to Davenham Church of England Primary School where I subsequently became the Deputy Headteacher and more recently the Headteacher. I am passionate about education and particularly about the work of church schools. I currently support the Diocese of Chester with Keeping on Track visits and am a trained SIAMS Inspector. I have a son who attended The County High School, Leftwich and later Sir John Deane’s Sixth Form College. In my spare time I enjoy travelling with my partner.
