Kristy Gardner - Director of English, Northern region

Kristy has been teaching English in a variety of contexts since September 2006.  She feels her career accelerated after she gained the position of Key Stage 3 co-ordinator in an oversubscribed secondary school.   Within this position she obtained a multitude of teaching and leadership skills that enabled her to successfully secure a Head of English post in a neighbouring school. 

Having worked in a range of schools, from those that have been graded ‘Outstanding’ to those that are facing challenge, Kristy was able to apply this knowledge and skill base to her new position and managed to increase GCSE progress results by 30% within two and a half years.

After a successful three years as Head of English, Kristy was then appointed as an Assistant Headteacher of Progress within a different large state secondary school.  She very much focused on school improvement and implemented an array of strategies to enable students to progress to their maximum potential.

In her position of Director of English, Kristy will be committed to ensuring that every child obtains the education that they deserve.
