Mr John­son, who orig­i­nally comes from Portsmouth, gained his BA (hons) de­gree in Fine Art and Sculp­ture, be­fore start­ing his ca­reer as a teacher in the United Arab Emi­rates.

His ca­reer to date has given him the op­por­tu­nity to work in a wide range of sec­ondary schools, both in the United King­dom and abroad.

He has worked in large com­pre­hen­sive and small in­de­pen­dent schools, in mixed and sin­gle-sex ed­u­ca­tion.

He has ex­ten­sive se­nior man­age­ment ex­pe­ri­ence across a wide range of set­tings as head­teacher, lo­cal author­ity ad­viser and Of­sted in­spec­tor.

Mr John­son lives in Here­ford­shire with his wife, three chil­dren and two dogs.

He is a keen sculp­tor and rel­ishes the op­por­tu­nity to be creative in his spare time.

He is proud to be prin­ci­pal at Newent Com­mu­nity School and Sixth Form Cen­tre and says that it is a real priv­i­lege to work with such a ded­i­cated team of pro­fes­sion­als and su­perb young peo­ple.

“Un­der my lead­er­ship the school will re­main com­mit­ted to meet­ing the needs of all stu­dents both aca­dem­i­cally and pas­torally,” he said.

“Our school is quite rightly at the heart of our com­mu­nity. Our chil­dren de­serve the best pos­si­ble start in life and I pas­sion­ately be­lieve that Newent Com­mu­nity School and Sixth Form Cen­tre will give them that pos­i­tive start.

“We are a school that of­fers a broad and bal­anced cur­ricu­lum to our stu­dents sup­ported by a vast range of ad­di­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties and ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

“We are a car­ing school where all staff sup­port and en­cour­age stu­dents to achieve their best.

“I am proud to be the prin­ci­pal of a happy, healthy and safe school where stu­dents de­velop as in­de­pen­dent, ma­ture and con­fi­dent young peo­ple who leave us ready to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to their com­mu­nity.

“The school is mov­ing from strength to strength. Our re­cent ex­am­i­na­tions re­sults are amongst the best the school has ever seen, with many more stu­dents of all abil­i­ties achiev­ing above all ex­pec­ta­tion.”

Mr John­son is pas­sion­ate that Newent Com­mu­nity School and Sixth Form Cen­tre con­tin­ues to be the high­achiev­ing school of choice for par­ents and stu­dents.

He wel­comes you to visit the school and see its fan­tas­tic staff and stu­dents in ac­tion.
