Tom Watson (Assistant Principal)

Assistant Principal - Deep Experience.

Having graduated from the University of Exeter with an Exercise and Sports Science honours degree I trained to become a Teacher of Physical Education at Nottingham Trent University via the Schools Direct Programme. During my time at my previous school Arnold Hill Academy I worked my way up from a Departmental Assistant, Cover Teacher, Unqualified Teacher, Teacher of PE, Assistant Head of Year, and finished as a Head of Year. I believe that the experience I gained in these various roles puts me in a strong position to help lead this academy and contribute significantly to the life chances of our pupils both academically and pastorally. Within my team we are currently proudly responsible for enrichment, pledges, student voice and careers, areas which make a significant contribution in helping our students leave our Academy as successful well rounded individuals, who are able to contribute positively to any society in any country around the globe.
