Scott joined the Farnley Academy in 2011 as Director of Mathematics. Prior to this, he was Head of Mathematics at Crofton High School for five years. Since joining the Farnley Academy, Maths results have been transformed, from 49% of students gaining A*–C grades to 81% in 2013. His transformational work as a Subject Leader of Education has extended beyond the Gorse Academies Trust (Farnley and Morley), to working with Leeds schools and more recently with Todmorden and Bridlington High School. One school saw a 12% increase in students achieving A*–C grades.
