Staff Stories

Mr Carrington,

Assistant Head

Redden Court recognises and rewards hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to success. I have been given the opportunity to progress from an NQT to Head of Faculty, SLT and now my current role as Deputy Headteacher within 10 years. I have been encouraged to introduce new technology to the school and work on a variety of interesting projects. The students and staff are a pleasure to work with and our team ethic is impacting positively on the progress of our students. Our reputation has been transformed in the past decade and the future is bright as we have vibrant leadership in place at all levels, quality teachers and a fantastic support network of staff who are dedicated to the needs of all students. We work closely with the other schools in our Multi-Academy Trust and continue to expand our own vision and ethos with plenty of opportunities for career development.

Ms Todd,

SFAET Leading Practitioner of Maths

Redden Court is a wonderful school and has supported me over the years with each stage of my professional progression. I started my training here as GTP in 2007, became leader of the house system, second in Maths and then Head of Faculty in January 2014. More recently, I have gained Lead Practitioner accreditation and when I returned to work after having my son, I was promoted to Lead Practitioner for Maths across the the Success for All Educational Trust. I have been given huge opportunities and been supported each step of the way.

Redden Court is a wonderful teaching environment, with excellent resources and students who make you love the job! If you are a good teacher, with great ambition and enthusiasm you will be supported and encouraged to go on and achieve fantastic things in your career at Redden Court.

Miss Morris,

PA to Executive Headteacher of the SFAET and Headteacher of Redden Court School

When I joined RCS over 11 years ago, I was job sharing the role of PA to the Headteacher. Now I work full time as the PA to the Executive Headteacher of the Success for All Educational Trust and the Headteacher at Redden Court School.

I have always felt supported and empowered to excel in my performance and development and am considered a valuable member of the Trust and Redden Court School team.

Mr Pendred,

Head of Technology Faculty

I arrived at Redden Court School as an NQT, and at the time I never thought I would progress as quickly as I have. This is a school that really recognises and rewards hard-work. From the very start I had the responsibility of being a subject leader in Product Design, then after only two years I progressed to Head of Department in Design and Technology, and in my fifth year at the school I was made Head of the Technology Faculty. I have had a key involvement in much of the school signage and have had opportunities to run school trips and lead a STEM club. This is an ambitious and supportive school full of great staff, and in my opinion there is no better place to pursue a career in teaching.

Mr Barrett,

Business Manager

I joined Redden Court in 2012 shortly after the school converted to Academy Status in January 2012. From that time I have learned something new every day. Little did I know the range of experiences I would have within the school. I have enjoyed every single day I have worked in the school and am extremely proud of the outcomes the students achieve and the part that I play in that. We are about to encounter an exciting time at the school with the formation of the Multi Academy Trust and building works through the Priority Schools Building Programme that will enhance the quality of provision for our students.

Redden Court is a school where I want to come to work with enthusiasm each day and I am empowered by an amazing leadership team.

Mr Sims,

Behaviour for Learning Mentor

I joined Redden Court School as a Learning Facilitator in 2016. I was immediately impressed (and inspired) by the dedication of the staff and the attitudes the students had towards learning. It is clearly evident that the school acknowledges the all round importance of the students wellbeing. I quickly became involved in the Futsal team and have managed them in competitions at the Copperbox in London. I also co-founded the Sports for Confidence team which has participated in various tournaments and competitions around the Greater London area. Redden Court School has afforded me the opportunity to advance in my career. As a result of that I have become the schools Learning for Behaviour Mentor. It is a privilege to be part of a team that truly reflects its ethos of "Success for All".
