As the Education Director of Harrow International, Mrs. Carr believes that strong, positive and focused leadership at all levels in a school is essential to its success and improvement. During her long and distinguished career in education, she has worked for renowned schools and organisations such as UK’s Association of Schools and College Leaders (ASCL), promoting leadership development opportunities. She has also worked with educational policy makers and other government and non-government agencies on a variety of areas including the shaping of the new secondary school curriculum, assessment processes, and governance and leadership.
Mrs. Carr is a member of the Board of Governors of the International Baccalaureate (IB), which provides a series of four educational programmes that focus on teaching students to think critically and independently, and how to inquire with care and logic. Its curriculum has been developed and applied in almost 5,000 schools in over 150 countries, becoming a benchmark for high-quality education. Prior to joining Harrow International, she was Executive Principal of The Skinners’ Kent Academy and Skinners’ Kent Primary School, which ranks in the top 10 schools for IB education performance in the UK.
