Gemma Claughton

Gemma attended a comprehensive Catholic school in Yorkshire. Coming from a family where it was common to succeed in spite of an education, she was late to understand the power of education. Although arriving in year 7 as an ‘average’ student, Gemma worked hard in school, securing a place reading Combined Arts at Durham University. Gemma then explored a career in arts education, becoming an intern at the prestigious Guggenheim Museum. After an immersive experience in museum education, Gemma then decided to join her twin sister and embark upon a teaching career! Having worked in schools for the past decade, Gemma has obtained roles that align to her moral purpose. Gemma’s experience has afforded her the opportunity to work across multi-academy trusts, focussing on developing young people and colleagues in the world of school improvement, particularly focusing on improving the life chances of those from disadvantaged contexts. Gemma has and continues to keep this moral imperative at the centre of what she does as a senior leader. An acute focus for her work is the supremacy of literacy in driving progress. On her more recent endeavours, Gemma champions equality in other areas too- women in education. She is also a local champion of the organisation: @WLiE_YandH, aiming to play her part in changing the imbalance in gender equality.
