Moulsham High School
Mark Farmer is the CEO of Bridge Academy Trust in Essex.
Under Farmer’s leadership, Moulsham High School has moved from being described as a “coasting” school in 2010 to one which registered the third highest progress score in all of Essex in 2017, denoting a concerted improvement in academic standards. This was credited to a fresh approach to leading on teaching and learning, with a new and rigorous CPD programme introduced along with the establishment of a teaching and learning community.
In July 2020, Farmer appeared on a Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland podcast, discussing leadership and the impact it has had on his career to date.
Earlier Career in Education
Before being appointed head of Moulsham High School in 2010 and CEO/Executive Headteacher of the Bridge Academy Trust in 2017, Mark's career in the sector began in 2002 when he served as a PE advisor and education consultant for Essex County Council.
After leaving his role with the local authority, Mark spent three years between 2004 and 2007 as the Deputy Headteacher of the Burnt Mill Academy Trust, before moving on to William De Ferrers School where he also worked as Deputy from 2007 to 2010.
