I’m Vice Principal at St Gregory the Great Catholic School, an all-through school in Oxford, UK. I have been teaching for over 25 years in Oxfordshire schools and colleges. I currently teach A level psychology and GCSE Science in the secondary phase. I also teach secondary computing and biology, and support reading and preparation for the phonics assessment in key stage 1.
My professional interests are Teaching and Learning, particularly in respect to inclusion and equity for economically disadvantaged students and those with special educational needs or disabilities, School Leadership, Professional development, Growth Mindset, and dedicated improvement and reflection time (DIRT). Recently I have become interested in the link between staff wellbeing and student outcomes, and strategies to help different groups of disadvantaged students make better progress leading to improved outcomes within and beyond school.
