“Under the transformational leadership of the headteacher attainment has risen rapidly and the quality of teaching has improved since the last inspection. Professional development and performance management are sharply focused on students’ outcomes.”

(Ofsted 2012)

Nadine's four schools-logos

I have been a successful educator at senior leadership level in four UK schools: Cramlington Learning Village (Newcastle upon Tyne), Bradfield School (Sheffield), Fareham Academy (previously Neville Lovett Community School, Portsmouth) and The John Roan School (Greenwich). 

Watch the following BBC South TV report on me being the first French Headteacher in the South East of England.

To speed up, slow down.


I will work with you to identify the leadership mindset that will help you (and your team) deliver extraordinary impact.


I am a global education leader. I have expertise both in the UK and overseas in school improvement work, school leadership, coaching, governance, school self-evaluation, evaluation of school development plans and curriculum reviews. I can help you.

Experiential learning will help you understand the necessary changes to your mindset and behaviours. We’ll encourage you to innovate so that you can transform your leaderships skills in an active and shared environment. You’ll be experiencing and exploring by doing.

Experiential learning will encourage you to take risks (in a safe environment), analyse and process new ideas with peers and reflect individually on the experience. You’ll work with new tools and methods, and practise new skills. You’ll be asking yourself ‘What works for me?’

Experiential learning is immersive with role-playing, guided discussions and simulated situations. You’ll be coached in new ways of working. Change is challenging but successful leaders know how to achieve it. So can you.

Experiential learning will help you chart your own learning path in a friendly and safe environment where you can enjoy your leadership growth mindset, whilst zooming in and out of your leadership competencies.

I enjoy shaping education policies. As Technical Lead with the Dubai Ministry of Education in 2020 I oversaw the pilot of a new evaluation framework including feedback on their new evaluation framework, design of a new handbook for evaluators, and training of over 40 evaluators on the pilot of the new framework and curriculum review.
