Since qualifying as a teacher in 2003 Amanda worked in schools in West Yorkshire for 11 years. Amanda held leadership positions in Maths departments for 9 of those years and with a Year 11 focus the teams achieved record results year on year. While working in Leeds Amanda led city-wide initiatives, such as leading AAP and delivering strategies to improve Teaching and Learning. She also embarked on outreach work which benefited students in Leeds and Doncaster. This desire to work with departments to help them improve inspired Amanda to join Outwood Grange Academies Trust in 2014. Since then she has been involved in teams who have rapidly improved the results and outcomes of students across the OGAT regions. Amanda is now the Regional Director of Maths for the South.
