My Work

Professional Overview


​I have a wealth of experience from 16 years of teaching in Doncaster, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire including 9 successful years in Headship. My school was judged by Ofsted to have made ‘outstanding progress since the last inspection’ under my ‘excellent leadership and management’. I also draw on a vast experience at Local Authority level having worked as an adviser/school improvement partner in North Yorkshire and Leeds for 7 years. My last post was Head of the School Improvement Service for 0-11 in Leeds leading a team of advisers and teaching and learning consultants.  For the last 6 years I have worked as a freelance independent education consultant and school adviser working in a wide and diverse range of schools and multi academy trusts, on a number of professional development projects. 





​I have worked with LA advisory, diocesan and business/education teams and have tutored on the following programmes:


  • National Professional Qualification for Headship

  • Leading from the Middle

  • Investing in Diversity for Black and Minority Ethnic Leaders

  • National Strategies Consultant Leader


I am an able and passionate speaker in front of an audience, and have delivered on a number of school improvement issues at conferences and seminars.  I have extended this at international level and work with school leaders of the BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Stavanger and London.
