I’m a history teacher at Torquay Academy where I lead KS3. I was once a Head of Department, but gave that up so I could focus on my own classroom.

If I ever finish then I plan to release my book, Show and Tell, in 2017, published by John Catt.

I am a classic case of a progressively minded young teacher who has turned to the dark side. I believe strongly in the twin powers of knowledge and discipline.

I’m also, as of September 2016, a proud Advisory Council member of Parents and Teachers for Excellence.
