A welcome from our Principal

I am privileged to introduce myself as the new principal of Briscoe Lane Academy. I have always been passionate about teaching and learning throughout the various leadership roles I have held. I am in the fortunate positon of already working within the Wise Owl Trust which will ensure a smooth transition for all members of the school community as we enter a new academic year.

My priority as the new principal is to ensure that Briscoe Lane Academy continues in its ambition to Outstanding.  I strongly believe that school is an opportunity for children to discover and unlock hidden talents in a safe and nurturing environment. Across the Wise Owl Trust we have already started to introduce a new innovative curriculum which supports children in developing key life skills and I look forward to supporting the staff at Briscoe Lane as they adopt this new ‘RESPECT’ curriculum.

I believe that a partnership between home and school can also be key to children finding school a positive and rewarding experience. I therefore strive to work in partnership with parents/carers and will continue to welcome you and value your contributions.  

Every child has the ability to do amazing things and be successful if we provide the right opportunities. I look forward to leading Briscoe Lane Academy through this new chapter and thank you for your continued commitment and support to the staff and pupils of this school.
