  • Sally Bavage

    Former deputy head of large secondary school in Leeds

    Headingley LitFest

    After qualifying in Biological Sciences, Sally spent over 30 years in classrooms across Leeds. Initially a secondary science teacher, she moved on to work with younger pupils and taught across the curriculum. A master’s degree in Education, advisory and consultancy work in science, mathematics and then IT followed before becoming a secondary deputy head responsible for implementing curriculum change for more than a turbulent decade. Work for the local education authority, and working to get free access to wide-ranging out-of-school opportunities for some of the most deprived young people in Leeds, completed a career spent enjoying chances to broaden minds and extend opportunities. Since then she has volunteered to raise funds for the Headingley LitFest, which supports poetry workshops in many local schools, as well as putting on a main programme of more than 30 events in March of each year.
