Mrs Thompson is incredibly proud to work at Bishop Young Academy and be part of our journey forward together. She began her teaching career in Armley in 2006 as an English Teacher. Since then she has worked as both a whole school Literacy Co-Ordinator, a successful Head of English, an Associate Leader for Intervention & Quality Assurance and held various other responsibilities within school from leading on Church Life to SEND. Mrs Thompson is passionate about working in the inner city and has worked in our city's most challenging (and rewarding) schools. After leaving university she spent time working in India with a charity that built and operated schools within slums in several major cities including Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Panjim. She was awed by the resilience of the children, the families and the teachers she worked with there and this is what inspired her to choose a career in teaching.
At Bishop Young Mrs Thompson is responsible for supporting your child develop personally and spiritually as well as academically. She also works closely with all staff to help promote the distinctly Christian ethos of our Academy and to make sure that all students, whatever their faith or background, benefit from an inclusive religious environment and can explore their own moral and spiritual beliefs.
