Assistant Vice Principal
Cathedral Academy has a national reputation for excellence in the Arts – at whole-academy level as well as through our CAPA College and CAPA Juniors provision. My role is to ensure all students across Key Stages 3 and 4 have access to high quality Arts provision and experiences – both through their curriculum and wider experiences. I also lead the renowned CAPA Juniors programme, ensuring that the curriculum is high quality and engaging, allowing the students who choose this pathway to have an experience which prepares them for working and succeeding in this competitive industry. I also lead on whole school transition, working closely with our partner primary schools to ensure that the move from primary to secondary education is smooth and enjoyable, and that they can continue to make excellent progress. I also oversee the whole school Student Leaders and Involve and Achieve extended learning programmes because we know that our students learn so much outside of their formal lessons – at revision and catch up sessions, through extra-curricular activities and on trips and visits – as well as through leadership experiences.
