Clare Barber: BA (Hons), PGCE, MA, CIPD
Clare is the Academy Principal and has more than 10 years’ experience as a senior leader in schools across the north of England. She is also a qualified English teacher and has taught in several schools, before joining West Grantham Church of England Secondary Academy in September 2020.
Clare has previously worked in industry, across a wide range of businesses, including the BBC and McCann Erickson Advertising. She also spent 4 years living and teaching in Colombia, South America, before returning home to take up a position in a school closer to home.
Clare made a decision, early in her educational career, to work exclusively in schools that face challenging circumstances and supported that commitment through participation in the Future Leaders programme.
