Deputy Head’s Welcome

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the Deputy Headteacher of Victoria English School. The school has a long lasting tradition of excellence in terms of academic results and developing young people into becoming ambitious, resilient and successful members of the community in this rapidly changing world.

My main area of responsibility is the Secondary school and Sixth Form and I also take the lead on all the pastoral areas across the whole school. I have an unshakable belief that every child can achieve their potential and it is our job as educators to get them to that point.

Academic achievement needs to be balanced with a strong, caring culture and the well being of our learners is paramount to all of us. I also encourage our students to develop leadership and community skills as well as collaborate thinking and resilience building.

I have over 20 years experience in the British education system in the UK and have worked across the country from Manchester, London, Kent to East Sussex. I have worked in some outstanding school environments and aim to use this experience at Victoria English School.

We look forward to welcoming you to VES,

Matthew Keyes
Deputy Headteacher
