Angie’s teaching career encompassed widely varying school contexts across Essex, ranging from an area of significant urban deprivation to a semi-rural village setting. After fifteen years as a successful Deputy and Headteacher in separate primary schools, she joined the Local Authority as a School Development Adviser and, subsequently, an accredited School Improvement Partner.
From 2012 Angie became an independent consultant, supporting school leaders and governing bodies in Essex and beyond. She continues to work with schools with very different needs, from those that are vulnerable and facing challenging circumstances, to those seeking to maintain and enhance their outstanding practice. Since 2014 her role has included working as a School Improvement Partner with the Collaborative Academies Trust.
School governance is a particular interest. Angie has extensive experience as a governor in both primary and secondary phases, and is a director of a Multi-Academy Trust. She holds the BTEC Advanced Certificate in School Governance, leads governor training and has recently completed a Master’s Degree at the University of Cambridge in Educational Leadership and School Improvement, with a particular focus on school governance and managing headteacher performance.
