Garry Boote

Vice Chair of the Strategic Board

Garry began his working career working for a bank before seeing the light and moving into primary education! He has had the privilege of spending the last 25 years as a Headteacher in four varied schools across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. He is currently Head of Academy at Sutherland Primary where he has been for the last thirteen years. As an accredited School Improvement Partner, he has been able to offer support to other schools. Garry has a long-held passion for promoting opportunities for children, staff, the wider community, and our next generation of teachers, to help them thrive and flourish, with a particular interest social inclusion and mobility. These are core personal values shared with KNSTE and so he is delighted to be in a position to contribute towards this common purpose!
