My old collegue from my Cove School days, Ben Dunne has started his new role as Head Teacher at Penketh High School in Warrington this month. Ben was a great role model to me when I first joined Cove School back in 2004, giving brilliant advice and support during his three years there as Assistant Headteacher. Ben gave me many opportunities and ideas to improve my teaching. He even got me to share good practice in a couple of INSET Days with our work alongside the Hampshire Inspection Advisory Service.
Since 2007, Ben moved to the Stockport Academy as Principle, where the Academy became the most improved school in the North West under his leadership. No doubt Ben will be a success at Penketh High School and I am looking forward to hearing about his adventures ‘up north’. Good luck Ben!
