Christy Gibson

Associate Assistant Principal and Head of Vocational Education

Following a degree in Psychology from Northumbria University, I went on to begin my teacher training in 2012. One year later I became qualified and secured employment across our predecessor schools, Eston Park and Gillbrook, as a subject leader in Health and Social Care.
After the merger of both schools, which became Hillsview Academy, I was appointed as Head of Vocational Education and Centre Quality Nominee in 2016 to manage multiple GCSE option subjects. During this time I also provided consultancy work to schools in other Local Authorities centred around vocational education. In July 2018 I was appointed as Associate Assistant Principal, with a focus towards data/ curriculum later leading towards coaching staff in teaching and learning in other areas within the academy. My focus as Associate Assistant Principal for 2019 is transition of Year 6 students from KS2 to KS3.
