Natasha Carman – Principal
Natasha Carman 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, and in 2022 became Head of School, then in 2023 Principal. She is excited to be leading such an inspirational 'World Class' team, and looks forward to playing a key role in Moor End's continued journey. Outside school, Natasha enjoys reading and going to the gym. She also likes watching rugby, and walking her French Bulldog.
