Sharon Hope is headteacher of Clase Primary School in Swansea. She has a wealth of experience mentoring and supporting aspiring leaders, newly appointed headteachers and working alongside colleagues offering school-to-school support. Sharon is also a representative on the ALN Strategic Board and ALN Cross Phase groups in Swansea.
In her role as an Academy Associate, Sharon has contributed to cohort 3’s commission and engaged in coaching and professional learning. The opportunity to build professional relationships through networking with excellent leaders across Wales has led to the development of projects in her own school and helped her to support the development of leaders in her region.
“I am looking forward to continuing with the opportunities to develop my own leadership and enriching the learning journey of other leaders and aspiring leaders in Wales.”
Sharon loves to garden, and Monty Don is her hero! She is a city girl who managed to plant daffodil bulbs upside down, but now finds herself besotted with creating herbaceous borders, growing vegetables, and enjoying the beautiful Welsh mountains.
