Welcome from the Head of School:


It is with deep pride that I am now Head of School at Kemnal Technology College. I have been at the College for 4 years as 1st Deputy Headteacher and I am excited about driving the College forward as Head of School.

I am honoured to have on my Leadership Team, Stuart Smith, Executive Headteacher, (photo to right) Tanya Cornish, Deputy Headteacher, Matt Godden, Deputy Headteacher, Suzanne Maddison, Assistant Headteacher and Kim Brenson, Head of SEND.

I believe that everything we do is for our students. Our curriculum is student-centred and we aim for education to be growing hearts and inspiring minds. Our staff are appointed for their passion, their enthusiasm and their imagination in communicating with students to ensure that every single child in their classes is engaged, excited and challenged by the learning experience at all times.   

We also believe that learning does not stop at the classroom door.  We are fortunate that all departments of the College are involved in running extra-curricular clubs for students. This has a massive impact on engaging students in subjects as well as giving students the confidence to grow.

I believe in high standards and there are no exceptions, in particular with regards to behaviour.  I believe in respect - this works both ways and most importantly, I believe in my students.  I believe that every child has the right to an education that is excellent and delivered by teachers who care. My vision is to empower students so that they are able to take control of their own future and have enhanced life chances as a result of learning with us. Together with your help and support, we will ensure that every child has the education they deserve.
