Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Meet the Staff

We welcome you to meet the OA Putney family

Academy Leadership Team

Di Morgan - Executive Principal

I have been a headteacher for 13 years and  it has been my privilege to open this school,
a project I started to work on in 2011. I have just the youngest  of my many children left
at home and am desperate to be a Grannie through one of his older siblings. In the mean
time, I spend so much time travelling between schools that I am seeking to relocate to Putney.
I love gardening, hiking, reading and opera. When I stop travelling so much I will be able
to resume my running again in the hope I can get a sub 4 hour marathon under my belt.

Laura Nike - Assistant Principal

I am married, have two wonderful children (8 and 11) and in my spare time I enjoy interior
design, photography and walking our black lab, Coco.

I  am very keen to meet all the parents, and look forward to building an inclusive atmosphere
based on openness and trust.  I am eager for us to work together to create a learning
environment that ensures academic excellence, and strives for each child to reach their full potential.
