Sir Kevin Joseph Satchwell, born (1951-03-06) 6 March 1951 (age 66), is the Headmaster of Thomas Telford School in Shropshire.[1]

The son of Joseph and Pauline Satchwell, he spent 15 years teaching in Liverpool and four years as headteacher in Wolverhampton, but it is his stewardship of Thomas Telford School over the past 10 years that has put him in the spotlight. The City Technology College became the first non-selective state school in which all the GCSE/GNVQ candidates got top grades. The school garnered headlines again by selling its online information technology course to other schools, earning more than enough money to put £1m into the formation of one of the new city academies.[citation needed]

In July 2010, Sir Kevin received an honorary doctorate from Staffordshire University.[2]


In 1975 Satchwell married Maria Bernadette Grimes, the Headteacher of Madeley Academy; the couple have a son and a daughter.
