Kirsty is an associate consultant for Focus Education. Kirsty has held leadership posts in a wide range of schools in Leeds. She has a proven track record of transformational leadership and in her last post as headteacher, brought about rapid change and improvement through an innovative approach to curriculum, teaching and learning, and learning-centred leadership. One year after taking up her post, Ofsted recognised the school as rapidly improving due to the quality of leadership and management.
