Ms Myles – Deputy Head

Julie Myles

I joined Gretton in September 2012 when the school was in the early stages. I can honestly say that I haven’t looked back since. It has been a privilege to be part of the development of the school, watching it grow. I feel that working at Gretton gives me the opportunity to really make a difference to the students and their families. Gretton is a community where there is an ethos of support for students to help them to achieve their best outcomes. It is a real pleasure to see the students learning and implementing strategies to manage their challenges and being supported by an understanding, fantastic staff team. Gretton is where autism makes sense and I really enjoy the ability to think differently to support students, parents and my colleagues.”


Mr Greygoose – Form Tutor

Sean Greygoose

“I have enjoyed working here since I started in September 2016. All the staff here are great and I have never worked in a school where the staff support each other so much, not only in lessons but also outside the classroom. Each day here is different and you get to know lots of different students and see them learn and progress; not only lessons but in life too.”

Ms Taylor O’Farrell – Subject Co-Ordinator, DT Teacher

Samantha Taylor O'Farrell

“I can say without any hesitation, how much I love my role here at Gretton.  Leaving mainstream education and coming to a school where the entire focus is to promote progression and individualise support for the unique learner; feels like I have found my ultimate niche.  I am never bored and every day I learn something new and incredible about ASC and other associated conditions.  I work with some of the brightest most intelligent minds, who just happen to see the world slightly differently to me; who in turn, have helped me develop strategies for my profoundly autistic son.  I am the happiest I have been in my entire career.”

Mr Watkins – Examination Officer, KS4 Form Tutor, PHSE Coordinator

David Watkins

“This is my fourth SEN school and since starting at Gretton in June 2016, it has been a pleasure to work alongside the most dedicated and hard-working team of colleagues. Each day the team go over and above expectations, to ensure every student is given the same opportunity to progress,  feel happy and safe.”
