As a headteacher, sitting in ‘the chair’ is unlike anything I have ever done. The responsibility, pressure, expectation, and isolation is, at times, unreal. Image
I can see why, and I know of, many heads who struggle or battle with the job. I really don’t believe enough is done to protect our headteachers.

When I became head I was one of the youngest in the country - I was at the top of my teaching game and on an upward trajectory, but
- but not prepared for the overwhelm, emotional toll and heavy responsibility that came with ‘the chair’.

That is why I took active steps to understand all these different aspects of surviving and thriving as a head - and, ultimately, it is what has led me to the road I am on.

Today, I am able to publicly share some personal news. I am standing down from my role as a headteacher. #headteacher #ukedchat #SLTchat
It is not a decision I take lightly at all – and it is one I made together with my family. I know lots of other heads who talk about ‘getting out’ or finding something else to do – but they just don’t know what.
I was appointed as a head at 31, and I’m 34 now. For what I lack in life experience I make up for in understanding that life is too short not to dare to make an impact.
