Armando Di Finizio
Armando has been a teacher for 30 years, in London and Bristol before moving to Cardiff in 2015. Armando has led three schools: two of which were moved from Special Measures status, to being OFSTED Good with Outstanding features. His third Headship at Eastern High has seen the school move out of Special Measures and become over-subscribed. All three schools moved from being amongst the lowest performing and highest excluding schools in the country to achieving above expectations for similar schools and zero exclusions.
As a Head and Deputy, Armando also has experience in the design and build of four schools and in moving these school communities into the new builds.
