Meet Our Team

Our Staff

Ours is a dynamic school community with over 100 members of staff in teaching and support roles.

The Principal has overall responsibility for all aspects of the school and the Executive Team sets its strategic direction and oversees the implementation and delivery of key strategic objectives.

To allow for focused discussion and enhanced efficacy of meetings, the Executive Team is divided into two groups – the Education Committee and the Business Committee. Each committee meets once a week, with the Executive Team meeting as a collective at the end of each half term. The Principal and the Head sit on both committees.

Darryl Wideman – Principal

Stephen Carrington – Head, Designated Safeguarding Lead


Education Committee

Peter Baker – Deputy Head Academic

Henry Meller – Deputy Head Teaching and Strategic Development

Adam Jones – Director of Sport & Co-curricular

Peter Nathan – Director of Sixth Form, Deputy Head Pastoral
