Mr Davies takes up VP role
Welcome to our new Vice Principal Pete Davies, who is looking forward to joining the senior leadership team at Kettering Science Academy with responsibility for data management and KS4 performance.
Mr Davies is a highly experienced teacher, having worked in a challenging inner-city Leicester school before becoming Senior Assistant Principal at Brooke Weston Academy, where he has worked for three years.
He is already familiar with the team at Kettering Science Academy as he has worked here on secondment for a day a week for the past year. Now he is looking forward to his full time role, working alongside VPs Darren Gadsby and Kirsty Farrar.
Pete said: ‘ The team at KSA has been fantastic, really welcoming and supportive. I am looking forward to working with them to get a good Ofsted grading. We are on the brink now so I am looking forward to that challenge, to tip us over and get that recognition for all the work that has gone on.
‘I will be working with Darren, who is new to the VP team and I get on really well with Kirsty. Her energy and passion is contagious. I am really looking forward to working with Tony Segalini who is doing a fantastic job. He leads from the front, is a very visible presence and clear about the direction he wants to go in.
‘It has been a fantastic experience working in the Brooke Weston Trust and I have had opportunities to network with people at different schools. Secondary Executive Principal Anne Hill brings a huge amount of expertise from her vast knowledge of working in data, and she has shared a different perspective and way of looking at things. I have felt very supported and there has been a real knowledge base from people all across the Trust that I have been able to draw on.
‘I feel very privileged to have come into the Trust and have learned a great deal. I have worked directly in two schools and the people are fantastic. I have worked within Trust teams as well and there is a real camaraderie and shared drive to improve. There are high expectations, which are important, and that support and desire to help and train each other to improve. I have learned so much, which will stand me in good stead for my new role.’
