Vicky Simcock - Executive Principal at Yewlands Academy

Brigantia Learning Trust is pleased to welcome Vicky Simcock into the role of Executive Principal at Yewlands Academy

Dear Parent/ Carer

As part of our commitment to ensuring that students at Yewlands Academy receive the very best education and curriculum offer, Brigantia Learning Trust is pleased to welcome Vicky Simcock into the role of Executive Principal at Yewlands Academy following her most recent Ofsted inspection undertaken at Hinde House Academy.

She will be working alongside, Mr Kelly as Principal, Trust Directors and senior leaders and leaders of learning across the academy to ensure that every child is able to be the best version of themselves and to ensure that students are happy, confident and making excellent progress in all areas of their lives.

Vicky is an established leader in education with over 16 years of senior leadership experience and has already worked within the Trust, as Executive Principal with responsibility for Hinde House Academy for the past 3 years. Vicky has achieved an Ambition School Leadership’s Executive Educators Award. She has also worked as a Regional Education Director in the Midlands for a national Multi-Academy Trust which involved providing intellectual leadership to Principals across educational phases and motivating and developing leadership to embed developmental plans to ensure rapid and outstanding teaching and learning.

Her shared vision for the future is for an excellent education where every pupil, student and staff member is empowered to fulfil their potential and achievement is valued. It was her personal ambition and incentive to work for an academy and Trust whose values resonated with her own. Her belief is that belonging to the Brigantia Learning Trust enables strong progress and outcomes, where Trust-wide values are integrated and embodied, and support for wellbeing is a priority. In addition, Vicky believes a broad and balanced curriculum exists within the Trust to excite and extend beyond academic learning, with an emphasis on bespoke CPD, career paths and opportunities that enhances the experience for staff, pupils and the local community.

Vicky will divide her time working at both Hinde House and Yewlands Academy and she is very much looking forward to getting to know the Yewlands family and community.

Yours sincerely

Mike Westerdale
Chief Executive Officer
