Andy Barnett

Director of Education, Secondaries

Andy’s career started in local authority state comprehensives in London and then West Yorkshire. From NQT to Vice Principal and through academisation he specialised in A Level teaching and Post 16 leadership. Since conversion to Delta 4 years ago, he has progressed from Vice Principal through to Associate Executive Principal and most recently Executive Principal, having led Manor Croft Academy as Principal. Andy now supports multiple academy leaders as Director of Education (Secondaries).

The Academies Andy leads are very different with their own distinct characteristics yet they all feel like Delta Academies due to the central systems and approaches that we use. When he joined Manor Croft Academy in Dewsbury it was an underperforming Secondary Academy where students left without the outcomes that would allow them the best opportunity of success. It is now one of the highest performing schools in the North of England for both attainment and progress.

If you are applying for a position at one of our Academies then you need to be passionate about educating young people, have a lot energy and a positive outlook. We work at pace as we know that young people only have one opportunity in education. The most positive aspect of working for Delta is the support along the way.
