Anne was appointed as Headteacher at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School (QEGS), Ashbourne in September 2012 having been a Headteacher in Stoke-on-Trent.  QEGS achieved Outstanding for Leadership & Management in an Ofsted inspection in November 2014 and became a National Leader of Education (NLE) in 2015.  Anne has worked in partnership with several schools and academies, as well as being a member of the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust.  In early 2016, she became the Executive Headteacher/CEO of QEGSMAT – something of which she is very proud.  School to school support, focused on delivering school improvement, is now a significant part of her role – supporting other Headteachers and schools in the locality – including Derbyshire, Derby City and Staffordshire.

Anne was elected to serve on the East Midlands and Humber Headteacher Board from the 1st November 2017.  She is also a National Coach for Women into Leadership and has also been awarded a Fellowship from the Chartered College of Teaching.

Anne is a National Pupil Premium Reviewer and regularly carries out PP reviews to ensure that children eligible for Pupil Premium funding leave education with the best possible outcomes.

From September 2020 Anne became part of the School Improvement Team at Derbyshire Local Authority and works with identified schools delivering work on school improvement as a Link Adviser.

Anne firmly believes that young people have just one chance in education and schools have to do everything they can to make sure it is the very best it can be.  Being an NLE, coach, adviser and CEO of a multi-academy trust  means that, as a profession, Anne feels that lessons can be learnt from each other and support can be offered to raise the standards of education for all young people in the local region.
