Meet our headteacher

When I first arrived at NBA in 2003, I joined as a trainee teacher in the geography department.  Within the first five minutes, I could feel there was something special here. There is an atmosphere of optimism, celebration, pride and happiness.  


You can’t explain it, but NBA gets in your blood.   


Over the past 18 years, I have had the honour to have been inspired by many thousands of students, parents and staff, and now as headteacher, I know that NBA is so much than a school. We are a family that our students and staff are a part of for life.   


We are proud of what we do at NBA and the young people we help to mould into successful citizens of the world.  


We’d love you to join us to see for yourselves.
