I was appointed to the post of Headteacher at Castleview in 2005. I have been fortunate in being able to create a wonderful team who have made Castleview such a high achieving school. The HMIe Inspection of 2013 gave the school excellent evaluations which rates the Castleview school experience as one of the best in Scotland.
During my tenure as Headteacher I have been privileged to be asked to serve my country and my city. In 2011 I was a member of the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Life Long Learning’s Attainment Group. In 2013/14 I was seconded to the Dept. of Children and Families to support the raising of attainment across the city and to create a leadership programme for Headteachers. I returned to Craigmillar in May 2014 to resume my post at Castleview with the additional responsibility of seconded Headteacher Broad General Education at Castlebrae Community High School for two days a week. Craigmillar deserves to have a strong High School at the centre of its community and I was proud to be given the chance to support this aim. As of August 2015 I resumed my full time role at Castleview.
