Natasha Stokes – Vice Principal
Natasha Stokes has been passionate about literature since a young age, and always wanted to pursue a career where she could share this love of reading to inspire others. After graduating from The University of Sheffield with a degree in English Language and Literature, she decided to embark upon a PGCE and enter secondary teaching.
In 2006, Natasha began her career in an ‘outstanding’ Teaching School where she stayed for seven years after becoming Faculty Leader for English, and a Specialist Leader in Education. Results under her leadership improved year on year, to over 94% A*-C with a cohort who started below national average.
After working as part of a school improvement team in a struggling school, Natasha joined the Senior Leadership Team in a large secondary school, leading on core curriculum strategy, and data and assessment. Over the two years she was there, results improved year on year and Natasha was asked to take a position on a new leadership team in a struggling 2-19 academy near Oxford with responsibility for teaching and learning cross-phase.
Natasha returned to Yorkshire in 2017 to take up the post of Vice Principal at Moor End Academy. She is excited to be a part of the team at such a key time, and looks forward to Moor End Academy becoming a world class education provider. Outside school, Natasha enjoys reading and going to the gym. She also likes watching rugby, and walking in the Yorkshire countryside.
