Ms Kellie Fagan

I have led and strategically managed curriculum and pastoral programmes, both in my current position at Creative Secondary School, and previously as Deputy Head of German Swiss International School. In my current role, I have introduced positive education and a restorative practice framework, which has resulted in improved student engagement and sense of community. When joining German Swiss, I was recruited to lead the school through the authorisation and implementation of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This change in senior curriculum impacted positively on student learning and nurtured a more collaborative approach to meeting student outcomes. In both roles, I have actively fostered a culture of communication and professional learning across the school. I really enjoy working collaboratively, value the opinion of others and continue to learn from my colleague’s strengths. I am strongly committed to the transformational power of experiential learning and have been fortunate enough to lead in this area, initiating action weeks and expanding existing programmes.

Outside of school I can often be found under the water, most likely in the Philippines, exploring wrecks or hunting down thresher sharks. I love a good long train trip and am not afraid to tackle Siberia in the winter.
