David Braybrooke - Head of School St Andrew's Academy

On Graduating from the University of Central England with a BA Hons in Primary Education, David was appointed as a class teacher within a mainstream Primary School in Burton on Trent.

Following 3 successful years in mainstream, he developed a passion for supporting students that required an increasingly personalised approach within the education system. As a result, David gained a role as class teacher within a Secondary Special School in Derby. This is where his Leadership journey began, supporting the school in various Leadership roles such as Head of PE and Head of Expressive Arts. After 4 years, David made the move to middle Leadership as he gained the role of KS3 Lead at a Secondary Special school in Burton and became Assistant Head shortly after.

In 2017, he was appointed Deputy Head at St Andrew’s Academy in Derby and was recently appointed as Head of School at the start of January 2020.

 “It is an incredibly exciting time to be contributing to the leadership team at St Andrew’s Academy. Following our conversion in September 2019, there has been a real buzz about the opportunities that our school community can enjoy as part of the SET family”.
