Executive Headteacher

Mr Stephen Hoult-Allen  MEd (Cantab) BAHons PGCE NPQH NPQEL

My name is Stephen Hoult-Allen and I have the great pleasure in being the Executive Headteacher of The Blue Tangerine Federation incorporating St Luke's School, Forest House Education Centre and The Collett School.  I currently work at St Luke's School two days per week, two days at The Collett School and one day at Forest House Education Centre.

My vision for the development of all our schools is to ensure we support high quality teaching through a curriculum that is relevant and purposeful.  Our horizon is firmly fixed on the need for our young people to become employed adults, thriving in whatever they are able to achieve.  The Government's own statistics show that 94% of adults with learning disabilities are not in employment or training and we want to improve those chances and opportunities of paid employment whilst the child is in our setting.  The development of our school sites to incorporate work-related learning, communication with our wider communities through services and work experience seek to future-proof our settings.

Within The Blue Tangerine family, diversity is an integral part of our history, culture, and identity. Inclusion is the way we treat and perceive all differences.  We want to create an inclusive culture where all forms of diversity are seen as real value for our schools.  We do not discriminate against people regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neuro-diversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes them unique.

I am extremely proud of our dedicated staff, who are focused on making a difference to each young person's lives. It is this passion that ensures the adults do their very best in supporting each child to learn, grow, achieve and thrive.  

We value your comments and thoughts about our schools and look forward to welcoming you very soon.

Best wishes, 

Stephen
