Kate Farrell

Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre

The Award for Outstanding Use of Technology in Education

Tenterden, Kent

Kate is a visionary leader and has created a model for learning which is both innovative and highly successful. Her commitment to the development of confident, independent learners, her ability to set out a vision and her capacity to think through the detail of implementation make a powerful combination.

In the establishment of the I-College, Kate has harnessed the power of technology into a blended learning approach which is truly inspirational. Kate is modest and constantly feels she has more to learn whilst being ever ready to give credit to others for what they achieve. She does not realise what an inspiration she is to others. She just wants to do what is best for the students.
