Alan Salt - Principal - Principal of King Edward VI Community College 

I joined KEVICC in September 2014, having moved to Totnes in 2012. Previously, I worked in schools in Bristol and Oxford. I come from an educational family.  My dad was a secondary head teacher my mum was a SENCO (and latterly President of NASEN) and my brother is a deputy head teacher. I trained in history, but I have taught Geography, RE, English, Leisure and Tourism, Project Based Learning, and, briefly, French.

I think we have a wonderful opportunity at KEVICC to create something really special - a comprehensive, inclusive, and cooperative college with exceptional standards that are rooted in its local community.

Jo Cooke - Co-opted Governor 

Totnes is where I call home and probably always have! Having been fortunate enough to grow up in this area and then having the opportunity to travel extensively, settling in a few different places along the way, it felt right to move back to the area about 15 years ago. My career has involved managing a number of businesses with a focus on environmental solutions, leadership development with young people and adults, and more recently in tourism. I’m passionate about good engagement and bringing people together to build better communities. I believe schools and those that inhabit them should be right in there at the heart of all that we do. I am committed to working together to provide a vibrant school platform that supports young people to be the best they can be, in the world of their choice. 

I have a fab, patient husband and two awesome children who keep me on my toes! I love sports, am a member of Dart Hockey Club and am always up for new adventures!
