Leadership

“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. …You have taken the school from strength to strength since the previous inspection. Your relentless pursuit for excellence has made sure that every aspect of the school’s work has improved. ” – Ofsted 2017

The leadership structure of the PRU is designed to maximise the wealth of experience the senior members of staff have acquired over years of high level work within the education system. Due to the PRU’s commitment to providing a high level of support for students across a variety of needs, from academic to pastoral, we employ a variety of expert staff to meet these needs. Under the central leadership of Headteacher Helen McAndrew, Deputy and Assistant Head Teachers are empowered to deploy their talents and the talents of their staff as they see fit, to maximise the outcomes for the students under our care.
