Andrew has been Head of Science for the past eight years in two separate schools; Earl Mortimer College in Herefordshire and now the Community College, Bishop's Castle.  He has taught the sciences for 15, including all three sciences to A-level at different times.  In both schools he has lead sustained improvement in student outcomes through a combination of support and challenge.  In his current role he leads staff in other practical subjects too (PE, D&T and Food), and is applying the same principles to deliver improvement.

On a whole school level he has lead CPD that developed strategies to promote autonomous learning habits in students and strategies that promote boys' performance.  Both have been implemented on a whole school level to lead to sustained improvement.  He has whole school responsibilities for STEM, More Able students, International Partnership and Careers.  He has also had various involvements in ITT.
