Chris Keen – Principal

I am delighted have been appointed the new Principal of Ellis Guilford School.

I have taught for over 30 years, many of which were as a teacher of English, prior to taking up leadership roles in 3 different schools.

I have been a Principal for the last 11 years and have worked for CET for 6 of those years. My first appointment as Principal was in a large secondary school in Sheffield, which achieved an Ofsted Good rating.

I then moved to Staffordshire to lead two secondary schools and a 6th form. During my time in Staffordshire, I lead a school amalgamation programme, in which these schools became one, The Hart School. Following a Good Ofsted inspection, I have now moved to EGS.

I am excited about what our pupils can achieve at the school and look forward to playing a part in Ellis Guilford’s continuing journey of improvement.
