Mrs Osborn graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with a BEd Hons in Secondary Music having studied previously at Dartington College of Arts. Mrs Osborn has experience of teaching across the full age range, from EYFS to A level. She began her career in a large secondary school in Swindon as a Director of Music. Gaining experience at a secondary level in several SLT roles, including a very rewarding pastoral role as Head of House, she moved into primary education at Oare Primary School in 2014 as a move from St John’s Marlborough.

Mrs Osborn was appointed Head of School at Oare CE Primary School in 2017, with a promotion to Principal in 2019. In 2022, she was promoted to Executive Principal, supporting other school’s within Excalibur Academies Trust.

She is immensely proud and feels privileged to now have the opportunity to lead another Excalibur school and excited to start a new journey at Nythe. 

When not in school, Mrs Osborn loves to spend time at home with her husband, three children and a menagerie of animals, including her Dalmatian, Clemmie. She is a keen gardener and enjoys being outside as much as possible. She also continues to play the piano, flute and saxophone and lead choirs whenever she gets the opportunity.
