Executive Headteacher (Primary)
Haydn joined The Gateway Trust as Headteacher at Oakfield Academy in April 2019, bringing with him a wealth of experience of school improvement as a Head and Deputy in his own schools, as well as providing school-to-school support between multi-academy trusts in Lincolnshire, his home county.
Under his leadership within the trust, Oakfield Academy achieved a significant turnaround, moving from an 'inadequate' judgement in 2018 to a 'good' OFSTED rating in 2023, with two areas recognised as 'outstanding'. This accomplishment evidences Haydn's dedication and skill in fostering environments where pupils excel academically and become of good character, a particular personal passion.
Haydn's educational journey is further distinguished by his honours degree in Primary Education, NPQSL and, most recently, the National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership (NPQEL), obtained in 2023.
