Sean Powell, incoming Vice Principal, said: "Great Yarmouth Charter Academy is a special place, close to the hearts of all at Inspiration Trust and the families we serve. I'm thrilled to be part of what Charter will become and to build on its remarkable transformation and sterling work of the pupils and staff."

Iain Mackintosh, Executive Principal of Great Yarmouth Charter Academy, said: "Darren has been central to the improvements seen at Charter over the last three years. His work ethic, enthusiasm and understanding of what works in schools has helped us to move forward rapidly. 

"I am overjoyed that Sean is joining us. I was lucky enough to work with him in the Inspiration Trust central team earlier in the year and know that he brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and a real passion for school improvement. This will help the school take the step from being a good school to being an outstanding school."
