I am the Director of Teaching and Learning at Heathfield School and an advocate for evidence-based pedagogy. I regularly contribute to the Structural Learning newsletter, translating research into practice for pupils, parents, and teachers.  My hope is that we can empower students and teachers to make informed pedagogical decisions together, and that education research will be the foundation for these discussions.  For my MSc Education dissertation, I researched the impact of using student voice for pedagogical decision-making and made recommendations for how to facilitate this model in other secondary schools.

I have gained an extensive range of teaching and leadership experience over the last eighteen years as a secondary school teacher.  I have worked in state, international, and independent schools, teaching KS3 and KS4 Mathematics, and A-Level Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Psychology.  I have also been a subject leader, line-managed other subject leaders, and been a member of my school’s senior leadership team.

In my current role, I am responsible for teachers’ professional development, the quality of teaching and learning, partnerships with other schools, and supporting early career teachers.
