I started at Maltings Academy in 2012 as an English Instructor and the following year I successfully completed the School Direct program. I was subsequently appointed as an NQT where I was given the opportunity to develop as Head of Key Stage Three. In 2015 I was appointed Second in English which allowed me to progress as a Middle Leader, with the school investing in me further by granting me access to a Middle Leadership course to help with this. Keen to further my passion for teaching and learning, I started my current role of Lead Practitioner in September 2017. Maltings Academy has been a great place for my career to grow with a great network of support, no matter the level you are at in your career.- Georgina Flack - Lead Practitioner (English)
