Brendan Pavey is the Executive Head Teacher at North Bridge House Schools. Brendan has twenty-five years’ experience as a teacher and in the last decade, as a headteacher, working across a range of age groups in both single sex and co-educational environments.
Since joining North Bridge House Senior School as headteacher in 2017, Brendan has seen the school achieve record results year-on-year and secure a prominent ranking in the Sunday Times Results tables, whilst instilling a forward-thinking approach to teaching and learning… some of which we talk about in this episode.
Whilst we’re talking about leadership within the school setting, everything that Brendan shares can be applied to leadership in any setting. We cover decision making with partial information and huge levels of uncertainty, we look at creating a culture where people feel safe to share ideas, and the leadership lessons he learned steering schools through the COVID 19 pandemic.
