Senior Management Team
“My role, as Principal, is to ensure that the quality of everything that our College offers is outstanding: teaching and learning; pastoral care; the support that we offer outside of lessons and the resources to help you succeed. I am able to do this through the leadership of the Senior Team, the managers and staff at our College. Through the team of staff at our College, our focus is on enabling you to settle in, be inspired by your learning experience and to achieve exceptional success for the next stage in your development.
I write a regular blog and from that, you will see that I am passionate about Leeds United, world music, cycling and, in my younger days, played hockey, cricket at a good level and practised Shorinji Kempo for many years.”

Dr Ian Taylor
“My job as Assistant Principal is to work with students and staff to ensure we achieve the best we can. My prime responsibility is for quality and for College Performance (this really means exam results in one form or another) I report directly to the Principal and to the College Corporation. I regard myself as fortunate to work in a College that has excellent teaching and support staff and, as Ofsted recently noted, students who show a genuine desire to learn.
On a personal note – favourite film: The Incredibles; favourite track: The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades; favourite molecule: Quinine.“

“My role, as Vice Principal, covers a range of activities. I oversee our curriculum, entry criteria, the timetabling of subjects, groups and rooms. In addition I take a lead on introducing enrichment activities and curriculum innovations such as our fast track AS courses and our ‘flyers’ programme. Four of our Heads of Faculty work with me to ensure the courses we offer in those faculties help students to achieve exceptional outcomes and enjoy their time studying with us. I have also had the honour and privilege of taking four teams of Wyke students to undertake volunteer work in a South African township.
Along with my wife, I lead a Church group in Withernsea and enjoy cooking and Motown music. I am racing my daughter (aged 9) to the gold badge in figure skating – we are currently both on level 8, but I like to think I’m slightly ahead!”

“My role as Personnel Manager is to ensure we have the right members of staff, in the right place, at the right time. This involves recruiting new members of staff, arranging their working hours, contracts and the necessary safeguarding checks, ensuring they have regular reviews and dealing with any other staffing issues such as absence. When things change within the college, I am involved in the staffing implications of this. Staff development is also an area I am responsible for, working alongside the Assistant Principal for Curriculum and the Head of Faculty who leads on Teaching and Learning.
My interests outside of college include meeting up with friends, horse-riding, and attending a range of gym classes.”
