A guide to this blog

I’ve worked in education since 2010, as an English teacher, Head of Department, Assistant Head and Deputy Head in five schools, and I’m currently the Principal of Ark John Keats Academy, a 3-18 school in Enfield, North London. I write about curriculum, pedagogy, theory, English and books. You can read about what education means to me and why I do what I do here.

  1. This is another example of simple, consistent systems having a marked affect on the culture and expectations in a school. You are really making me re-think my approach as a leader and helping me reconnect with some core principles. I can not wait to visit next week.

    Thank you for sharing.
