Penny Alston – Headteacher KS2 – Kings InterHigh
What encouraged you to join Inspired?
The decision to join Inspired was an easy one. The Group’s child-centred philosophy places students where they belong: at the centre of the teacher’s focus in a personalised learning environment where they can truly blossom.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Inspired has afforded me excellent opportunities, first as headteacher of Reddam House Umhlanga, South Africa, and now at Kings’ InterHigh - Inspired’s first online school. We are at the cutting edge of online education, and the support provided by the wider Inspired team is invaluable.
Has Inspired supported your career development?
I have enjoyed a remarkable career in education, and Inspired has played a large role in my development. I was supported when studying for my Master’s in Education Leadership and Management and recently when undertaking my PhD. Importantly, as part of a network of 80 schools worldwide, we enact and deliver best practices to children so they can progress alongside us.
