I have worked in education for more than 20 years in many different roles, most recently as Acting Head in another local school. Before this my roles have included Deputy Head, Assistant Head, Head of Department and a Maths and Computer Science teacher. During my time in teaching I have always been happy to teach subjects outside my specialism and have taught A level Psychology and Philosophy as well develop Citizenship and the PSHE curriculum. In 2005 I published a resource book for Maths teachers called “ICT links – Maths”. I have also had articles published in computer teaching magazines as well as creating teaching resources for various companies including the National grid.
I first moved to Dorset in 2001 where I became part of the National Strategy consultant team for Dorset County Council working with secondary schools including The Sir John Colfox Academy to develop their ICT curriculum.
I achieved a Masters of Education (MEd) in 2015 at the University of Exeter where my dissertation focused on metacognition and motivation of students. I gained a postgraduate National Professional Qualification in Headship in 2007.
My main focus is improving the quality of education for all students in Bridport and giving everyone the best opportunities possible for them to succeed in the future. I live in Bridport with my wife and two children.
