We are starting off this year like never before due to the Pandemic. Our situation is changing daily and we are learning to adapt to, and work through, the many challenges we will face. Despite it all, I have high hopes for this College year and so should all of you. We will all learn new things and discover strengths and skills that we didn’t know we had. All of us will get better with technology whether we like it or not. Now, more than ever, we need to focus on the positive and what we are able to do rather than what we cannot do. “Can’t” is temporary, it just means we haven’t done it or figured it out yet, but you will, as long as you keep trying and don’t give up, believe in yourself.
I am pleased to announce that we now have Lateral Flow Testing in place at the college.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I have led and taught in the specialist and mainstream sectors for over 25 years. For the past 16 years, I have specialised in the leadership and education of students with social, emotional and mental health. I started off my working life in inner city Liverpool as a teacher of History moving onto being a middle and then senior leader in a variety of settings across the North West and Kenya. In my last 3 schools I held senior leadership posts at Deputy Head level in a mainstream 11-18 school, an Academy and a Pupil referral Unit. I am dedicated to improving outcomes for young people and have led on a number of special projects locally and nationally.
I believe that with a positive attitude, a growth mindset, and good character anyone can achieve great things. I will strive to instil these qualities in our young people and to be a positive role model as well. We are all here to learn together. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment that challenges our students to reach beyond their expectations to become lifelong learners.
I am excited about the possibilities that this College year will bring and proud to be part of the Beaumont College Community.
Stay positive and stay strong.
