Matthew James

Vice Principal

I graduated in 2003 with a BA in English Literature from the University of Wales, Swansea. Educated to Master’s level, I am an advocate of lifelong learning and am currently studying for my NPQH.

I am honoured to be a Vice Principal at WSO and have thoroughly enjoyed the time my family and I have had at the school since we joined in 2016. Since joining the school, I have held several leadership roles including Director of Languages and Assistant Principal.

Leading our Post-16 provision is a privilege and one I am very grateful for. Being able to support our students through their pathway and subject choices in Year Eleven through to their university choices at the end of Year Thirteen is something I am especially proud of. WSO has sent students to all corners of the globe including some of the highest ranked universities in the world.

As well as working at WSO, I am part of a proud WSO family. My wife, the Head of Art at the school, and my two children have made this our home and we are forever grateful to the WSO community for making us feel so happy here.
