With over thirty years of working across the education sector and twenty of those at Headship or Director level, Richard is an experienced and successful education professional and leader.?
He has worked across the whole of the UK and also in International Schools in the Middle East. His first headship was on the South Coast, a school that under his leadership became over-subscribed and the number on role almost doubled to over 1250. He then moved into the Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) world, working initially through a University based MAT and then at Regional Director level for one of the largest MATs, supporting both primary and secondary academies. Following that he was the Director of Education in another of the large national MATs.?
In 2012 he became involved in Governance and took on the Chair of Governors role in a school with an inadequate OfSTED grade; that school gained Outstanding in 2019 with Richard as the Chair. This journey and support were recognised with Richard gaining National Leader of Governance status in 2016.?
Prior to moving to the Blessed Peter Snow Trust, Richard was the CEO of a Catholic Multi-Academy Trust in the East Midlands.
