Adrian Price, BA (Hons) French & History, NPQEL, is proud to be the Principal of George Salter Academy. He grew up four miles away and just loves being a die-hard Aston Villa supporting head of a West Bromwich academy! He is an experienced leader, having moved to GSA for his second headship. He has worked in a variety of educational settings in Birmingham, Walsall, Worcester and Thailand. Adrian speaks French fluently, Spanish and conversational, now mostly golf course and restaurant quality, Thai. He believes passionately in the power of learning a foreign language to develop empathy, inter-cultural understanding and communication. Adrian’s own motivations are very simple: for young people to be safe, happy, enjoy learning and achieve beyond their potential. He strives to raise aspirations and make a positive difference to the lives of students and staff alike.
As his children have now grown up and left home, when not in work, Adrian can mostly be found out running 10ks or half-marathons, reading a book or at the cinema.
