Main Phase: Secondary
I am currently working as a Head of English at Sundorne and Grange Secondary Schools, and am an Assistant Head across these two schools and Grange Primary. I am also Literacy Coordinator in the two secondary schools. Since starting at Sundorne, GCSE results have increased consistently each year and in 2013 were the best in Shropshire.
I use a wide range of teaching strategies with pupils and use many different techniques to achieve the best results for the pupils and the school. I work closely with Intervention Mentors and am experienced in using data to provide the most effective intervention. I also have experience of working in many other schools, and also in the private sector with young offenders and pupils with special educational needs and extreme behavioural issues.
Over the last few years I have run a number of courses at the schools I work at, and have worked with several schools to help improve achievement and results.
