Episode 1: Raising Aspirations
with Rowena and Stephen
In our very first episode of the Ambition:Feed Education Podcast we’re in the North-West to speak to Manchester-based leaders, Rowena Kidd and Stephen Garvey. Rowena is Assistant Headteacher at Stretford High School, and Stephen is Associate Deputy Headteacher at All Saints Catholic College in nearby Dukinfield.
They discuss what low aspiration looks like in their schools, and the role of leadership in raising the aspirations of pupils, parents and staff. Tune in to hear honest conversation about the challenges they face and some fantastic initiatives and advice for ensuring their pupils aim for the stars.
‘Low aspiration looks like students who accept
second best… Our job is to encourage those students to aspire to the stars.’
