Ben Rhodes

Deputy Headteacher

I have proudly served the community of Trowbridge in my capacity as Deputy Headteacher of The John of Gaunt for 6 years. My main responsibilities are based around the quality of curriculum, timetabling the curriculum, the effectiveness of our distributed leadership and the progress of disadvantaged students. I have experience of working in 6 different schools with responsibilities in pastoral, pedagogical and curriculum roles. I have held senior leadership roles in 4 of these schools and am a Specialist Leader of Education. I am passionate about my profession and I am driven to ensure I can help provide our students with the best life-chances possible. I feel privileged to work within such a child-centred school. Outside of teaching I coach the Under 13 Bath Junior Rugby squad and enjoy either hosting or visiting Trowbridge Rugby Football Club, competing against a few familiar faces!

I am immensely proud of being p;art of this wonderful school for in excess of 20 years! During that time I have seen countless Year 7 students arrive nervously on their first day and leave at the end of their education with us full of confidence and excitement for what lies ahead. I believe every child is entitled to an excellent education and they will certainly receive that at John of Gaunt.
