Darren Hollingsworth

Principal, King Edward VII Academy / Executive Principal, Great Yarmouth Charter Academy


‘There are no problems, only solutions', very neatly sums up Darren’s can-do attitude and approach to school leadership. Having been part of the leadership team that led Great Yarmouth Charter Academy from 'Special Measures' to 'Good', and recently Principal at Cromer Academy, he is now proudly serving King Edward VII Academy and is determined to make it the school of choice in West Norfolk.

Darren believes that school culture is the single biggest driver of raising achievement, where positive relationships are developed in every interaction. He vehemently believes that manners and respect are taught to all pupils and modelled by staff at all times, as it is these most important attributes that will make pupils stand out for all of the right reasons.
