By chance I saw an oportunity at The Hereford Academy which not only ticked the boxes from a professional point of view but very much from being so much closer to home. So now I have a 20 minute drive each day which is bliss.
More than that, a chance to work in an Academy will give me valuable insight into the other side of the fence. I have been working with schools for near enough 15 years and the opportunity to experience the complexities and challenges of running a school will be fascinating.
After week one I have met many good people and I face the challenge of putting thoughts into order to come up with some priorities and plans.
This will prove to be a big challenge but a rewarding one if I can get it right.
