Kevin has over a decade’s worth of experience in schools at senior leadership level including six years as Headteacher at two Birmingham schools. Kevin joined CORE Education Trust in March 2018 as the Headteacher of Arena Academy and stabilised that school following the transfer from the previous failing Trust.

Kevin now oversees the Trust’s remote learning offer, with specific responsibility for increasing student and parental engagement through the use of distance/online learning and the innovative CORE Connects and CORE Extra programmes.

Kevin is passionate about providing opportunities for all students ensuring there are no barriers preventing students achieving their ambitions.  As someone who played for Notts County FC as a youth player, and who spent time on a sports scholarship in the USA, Kevin is a passionate advocate for using sport and physical activity to engage students and promote positive mental and physical wellbeing.
