Meet our NLEs
Kate was Principal of Bottisham Village College from 2005 to 2015. During that time the performance of the school has improved significantly, and was judged to be outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2012. Kate has worked in a variety of schools throughout her career, including 11-18 schools in London and Hertfordshire. She is passionate in her commitment to state education and to ensuring that all young people in her care have access to an outstanding education. Under her leadership, Bottisham Village College has developed a relationship-driven approach to education, based on the firm belief that successful learning communities are based on a shared ambitious vision, trust and strong leadership.
Bottisham Village College is committed to working collaboratively with other schools and external organisations to support the development of outstanding opportunities for all young people. Their designation as a Teaching School has accelerated and extended the scope of this work very significantly.
Kate has previously been an SLE and was designated as an NLE in 2013; through these roles she has provided support for headteachers and leadership teams in a range of other secondary schools.
