Dame Sally Coates, DBE

DIRECTOR OF UNITED LEARNING'S SOUTHERN ACADEMIES

Sally Coates is the director of United Learning's southern academies, and was previously the principal of the Burlington Danes Academy. When asked about her career in education, Coates reminisces: “I got into my career by accident really. I originally wanted to do law but did not get the grades and ended up at teacher training college for what I thought would just be a short period whilst I reconsidered my options. I did one teaching practice and absolutely loved it and I realised that teaching was what I was good at and never looked back.” Burlington Danes Academy was once recognised as London’s worst comprehensive school, but under Dame Sally's leadership in 2013 Ofsted judged the school as outstanding in all four categories. In her new role she will oversee the performance of United Learning's 15 academies and free schools in the south of England.
