Our Staff

Stacey McShane – Head of Education


Stacey graduated from Liverpool John Moores University in 2001 and started her career working at an inner city school. After moving onto teaching in a deprived are of the South East, Stacey began to understand that working with vulnerable young people could be highly rewarding.

After three years, Stacey made the decision to take a break from teaching and experience the “business world” where she developed a range of skills and experience which could be used on her return to teaching.

In 2008 Stacey made the decision to return to the teaching profession again working with challenging young people in a number of roles.

Stacey joined Caldecott in 2013 as Head of School and shortly afterwards became Head of Education. Joining Caldecott has allowed Stacey to continue to work with the young people she is passionate about by taking on new responsibilities and challenges. Stacey’s short term ambitions are to develop the curriculum to meet the individual needs of the young people whilst giving them the opportunity to build self-confidence and achieve to their highest level and most importantly be proud of themselves.

Louise graduated from Bretton Hall, College of the University of Leeds in 1997 and started her career working as a Community Arts Worker in Yorkshire helping to run a Theatre Company for Adults with Special Needs, amongst other projects.

After completing a PGCE in 1999 Louise moved to teaching English and Drama in an all-girls school in Blackpool.  Louise’s passion was working with the most challenging students and so was given the opportunity to complete the SENCo qualification at Liverpool John Moores in 2000.  At this time Louise moved to the SEN department as a specialist teacher.

In 2001, Louise made the decision to take a break from teaching and go travelling around the world where she learned about other cultures and gained experience which could be used on her return.

Louise decided to move out to Sydney and gained a post as SENCo in an All Boys Catholic school in Sydney. On her return to England in 2003 Louise worked at a secondary school in Wellingborough, setting up 2 inclusion units and working as Head of Year 10.  During this time Louise completed her NPQH qualification.

In 2005 Louise moved to Kent taking the post of Assistant Headteacher at Tunbridge Wells High School.  Being SENCo was one part of this role as well as Head of Junior house.

Louise wanted to work more closely with young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties and so in 2012 took a role working at the Boulters, a care company school and was part of the team that achieved Good from OFSTED.

From here Louise joined Caldecott in 2013 as Head of School.  Her aim is to ensure school is a challenging yet fun environment that builds self-esteem.  She wants all young people to reach their full potential and enter the workplace ahead of their peers by creating a community where staff and students can learn together.
