About Me

I am Vice Principal of University Academy in Liverpool. We are an 11-18 year old Academy with around 650 students. I have a mission to ensure that our students that come from one of the poorest areas in the country perform higher than anyone else –anywhere. The vision of UAL is to ensure every child has a Will Do as opposed to a Can Do outlook. For us the imperative of success is crucial and the role of educators cannot be defined by academic success for students without emotional and resilient anchorage and neither can it be creating happy and caring children that are not able to stand shoulder to shoulder with all others academically. We have developed our own brand and approach to ‘No Excuse and No Shortcuts’, ‘Every minute Counts’ and ‘Right is Right’. Our approach is direct and is based on tough love. Our students know I am available to help them from 7.00am until 10.00pm every day of the week and I back it up with actually being there. They also know they have a obligation to be the best they can be. This is why you will be reading about us and begging to visit UAL!
