• The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School
  • Grove Street Primary School, Grove Street Wirral
  • Silver Winners
  • 2023
  • Wirral, Merseyside

Since becoming Headteacher in 2018, Lisa has driven substantial change, and developed and nurtured a therapeutic, family environment for the whole school community. She created and continues to exemplify the school’s ethos ‘Minds, Learning, Futures’, and wants all children to have a champion. This ethos has become the school’s beating heart and is integral to its growing success.  

All members of the Grove Street family, from the children to student teachers, from TAs to SLT, are encouraged to grow by Lisa and she leads by example. Thanks to a relentless passion and understanding of Early Years, her impact goes beyond the school community. She leads Early Years Foundation Stage improvement across the Local Authority, lectures student teachers at Liverpool Hope University and initiates community projects such as the school foodbank and uniform exchange.    

As a forward-thinking, research-led practitioner, Lisa is able to raise aspirations beyond school life. She initiated Wirral’s first ‘Building Futures’ whole school careers day and is a strong advocate for CPD.
