Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademyWe're looking forward to having everyone back in school on 8 March - we can't wait for school to come alive again! Just a reminder that students will need to wear a face mask indoors, including in lessons until the Easter break when this will be reviewed. Thank you! #staysafe2 days ago
I started Canon Lee in 2004 with below average SATS results. I am dyslexic and I struggled in school but refused to tell anyone about my dyslexia because I was embarrassed. I wanted to prove to everyone that I could pass my GCSEs and study A Levels, I knew this was extremely aspirational but I didn’t want to do anything else. I collected my results and I couldn’t believe what I was reading (5 As, 2 Bs and 4 Cs).
I joined All Saints Sixth form in 2009 and failed first year of A Levels. I was devastated. I had admitted I needed extra time to process the exam questions and give detailed answers. I re-sat my exams in the January of my second year and I managed to pass them all and went onto complete my A Levels in the June. I managed to secure a pass at Edge Hill University to study Design Technology Education with QTS, throughout my time at university I went from strength to strength and left with a first class honours degree.
For the last five years I have worked at Leeds East Academy in Seacroft. I have had a number of different leadership posts including Head of Year 7 & 8 and most recently I have accepted a job as Direct of Ethos and Values working alongside my schools senior leadership team to develop students’ attitudes to learning.
If I look back ten years I would have never thought I would be working as a teacher and own my own house. I spend my summers travelling, so far I have been to Thailand, Vietnam and America.
