Gavin O'Beirne-Corrigan - Geography

Teaching is a huge passion of mine and I really believe that the key to effective and well functioning departments are strong teaching teams and support of both staff and students.


I have been Head of Geography at Barclay for over 3 years and most recently I have developed my leadership capacity as Head of Humanities where I am responsible for overseeing the progress of 7 departments, including Geography, History, R.S, Psychology, Sociology, Health and Social Care and Politics. I have been in this role for over two years and as a result have developed a wide range of skills that have allowed me to positively influence other school leaders within our faculty.


My ultimate aim is to create and develop forward thinking departments who achieve well and allow for pupils to enjoy their learning.
