Arriving as Head of a school is daunting. In my case, the school was already Outstanding, had just had great results and all my mates were kindly telling me that the only way was down! They were also saying, ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’. But I had ideas and I hadn’t been appointed to put my feet up. It was important to get off to a good start.
