Senior Leadership Team

Mr C. Story


I have worked at Hardwick Green since September 2019 when I was Vice Principal, and I took up post as Principal on 1 April 2020. I started teaching back in 2009 after graduating from Durham University and taught for ten years in Stockton - from Year 1 to Year 6 - before coming to Hardwick. I am interested in what makes a good school leader and my favourite subject to teach is mathematics. Outside of work, I spend most of my time looking after my twin boys, but when I get some free time I enjoy reading (Stephen King is my favourite author), cooking, and building Lego!
