Assistant Principal: Achievement and Support

As Assistant Principal: Achievement and Support  it is my role to ensure that New College delivers an outstanding level of Pastoral Support to its students. I am responsible for the team of Progress Tutors who ensure that student attendance, retention and achievement are monitored on a regular basis and targeted interventions are in place to ensure that students receive the best possible grades. I also ensure that New College has a positive learning culture enabling students to achieve and progress into positive destinations within either university or high level apprenticeships. Part of my role also focuses on student’s mental health and well-being ensuring that support is both available on site and through external agencies. Student Support and achievement is at the heart of the role that I undertake ensuring New College is a happy, vibrant learning environment and has an underpinning ethos of achievement and success.
