Waveney Valley Academies Trust
Jeremy is Chief Executive Officer of the Waveney Valley Academies Trust, having been Headteacher of Sir John Leman High School for eight years, from 2008-2016. During that time, Jeremy worked with a dedicated Leadership Team to ensure that the school consistently achieved exam results which were amongst the best in the county, made some of the best progress in the country, became over-subscribed and achieved national recognition for student behaviour. Importantly, despite national trends, teachers at Sir John Leman High School remained and flourished both within the school, and the profession. In the past three years Jeremy has been seconded to Sewell Park Academy, Norfolk and to Alde Valley Academy, Suffolk, both of which saw significant improvements in GCSE results. Jeremy has also been the PiXL Deputy Regional Leader for the Eastern Region and worked as an Ofsted Inspector. In addition to these roles, Jeremy has served on ASCL Council, and been invited to present on raising exam results, leadership and improving behaviour at a range of national conferences and events. He is also the author of ‘Sorting Out Behaviour’, published by Crown House. Married to an English teacher, and with four children, Jeremy does not have much spare time. His hobbies are occasionally playing badminton (badly!) and watching Norwich City.
