Nigel Youngman

Headteacher – The Whitehaven Academy

Nigel Youngman is Headteacher at The Whitehaven Academy, having previously been in leadership roles in Norfolk and Suffolk; as well as working for a large Trust in Hastings.  During the past five years at Whitehaven, Nigel has enjoyed working with colleagues to secure the academy’s first ‘Good’ in Ofsted, with the development of an exciting Creative Curriculum programme (that incorporates components of the Cumbrian Award) and a focus on raising standards. The school is now oversubscribed in Key Stage 3. Being part of the WELL project has enabled Nigel to ensure young people in Whitehaven go from being seen as living somewhere isolated, to being at the heart of a STEM area in a place of outstanding natural beauty.
