Sabrina Hobbs

Sabrina has worked in a variety of different schools; from mainstream secondary, all-through SEN, and faith based. Much of her experience and transferable skill set has developed from leadership roles in the SEN sector where she has been able to harness energy and passion to realise and promote the true potential of young people regardless of ability or background.

She is currently the Principal of Severndale Specialist Academy for young people aged 3 to 19 with a range of learning difficulties. These include moderate, severe, complex and profound learning difficulties, those with autism, complex medical conditions and physical and mobility difficulties.

Sabrina has key skills in leading, managing and motivating highly skilled and inspirational teams with a proven record of achievement. In 2016 Ofsted commented: “Since becoming the principal of Severndale Specialist Academy in January 2016, you have worked well with senior leaders, governors and staff to build upon good practice and improve the school further. Senior leaders have
high expectations of themselves, staff and pupils and there is a shared ethos based around the school vision of ‘everyone valued, everyone included, everyone learning’. This is an inclusive and aspirational school in which leaders help pupils and staff to realise their potential.”

Sabrina is driven by the belief that our duty is to ensure our society is accessible and inclusive, maximizing opportunities across communities.
