Claire began her teaching career with Tudor Grange School, as it was then, as an NQT in 1997. Within five years and after operating as an AST for the school, Claire secured the role of Deputy Headteacher. In 2009, an opportunity arose for Claire to lead as Principal of a failing school in Worcester, sponsored by Tudor Grange between 2009 – 2014. Claire managed to turn this school into a school of choice for parents in the community, without doubt one of the success stories of Tudor Grange Academies Trust (TGAT). In 2014 Claire was appointed as the CEO/Executive Principal of the TGAT. TGAT has grown from initially being one successful school sponsoring another Academy to a group of ten schools. Claire has a clear plan for the Trust’s growth and plans for the future.
