Senior Science Technician

Archbishop Sentamu AcademyKingston upon Hull

Welcome to the Archbishop Sentamu Academy

Our aim is to bring the highest standards of education to the young people in our local area.

It is a great honour to be the Principal at Archbishop Sentamu Academy. I was born less than a mile away from our academy and I want to ensure all students lead the best life possible.

‘To lead the best life possible’

Our distinctively Christian vision is that everyone will be able ‘to lead the best life possible’, now and in the future. It is underpinned by the words of Jesus in John 10:10, which says, “I have come that you may have life in all its fullness.”  Our vision is lived out through our academy values of Respect, Community, Courage and Wisdom

We value respect, at all levels to and from each other.  It is through respect that we can grow.

We see ourselves as a wider school community supporting each other.  For us, community is also the locality in which we are situated and in which we serve.

We value courage from students and staff, to make progress with personal and academic development.  We know not all decisions or actions are straightforward and we know we need courage to persevere.

Finally, we value wisdom.  The ability to reflect on lessons and events so that we can learn from them and become better people.

Whilst we insist on rigorously high academic standards for all, we also focus on developing the whole student and promoting their well-being. 

I want exactly the same high standards for Archbishop Sentamu Academy children as for my own. By offering inspirational teaching and a range of extra-curricular activities, I strive therefore, with all my staff, to ensure that they are safe, happy and given every chance to flourish and to lead the best life possible.

I look forward to working with you all to ensure we achieve this.
