It is both a great privilege and a fantastic opportunity to be given the chance to lead Crawshaw Academy as the permanent Principal.

Bob Vince, Chairman of Interserve Academies Trust, said:

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Adam Daly as the new Principal at Crawshaw Academy. Crawshaw became Interserve Academies Trust’s first academy from 1 September, after falling into special measures earlier in the year.

Adam took up the challenge on an interim basis from the beginning of June and since then significant ground has been covered to ensure that our students receive an excellent education. After a very rigorous selection process, Adam convinced the Trust board that he would be an exceptional Principal who could take Crawshaw Academy forward in line with the stated vision, values and principles that we stand for.
