What The Good Schools Guide says
Since June 2007, some 15 months before the academy opened, Mr Michael Whitworth (40s). Previously head of Kelmscott School in Walthamstow. Born and brought up in Northumberland, he graduated as a historian and has recently taught history and religious studies. After working in both private industry and the civil service, he entered teaching and has worked in schools in London, Hertfordshire and Essex. He was attracted by the ‘unusual opportunity to create a brand new school from scratch’, and built up the school’s reputation very rapidly. ‘I think the governors recognised my capacity to stick to a task and see it through.’ Understated but extremely caring, say parents, very driven and with sights set very high. Married with two young children.
Principal of the secondary school is Gavin Smith.
