Area of Expertise : Secondary English
I’ve been an English teacher since 2000 and a Head of Department since 2009, teaching key stages 3, 4 and 5. I managed significant improvements in my school’s GCSE English results: 90% A*-C in 2011 and 88% in 2012 from 69% in 2007.
In 2012, the school was in the top 3% nationally for the progress students made in English to the end of KS4.
This was achieved through a number of changes to practice including improved (or new) schemes of work, resourcing and changes to setting policy.
Additionally, I’ve been a moderator for A-level English Language (AQA(B)) for 9 years and have developed expertise in delivering this A-level. Teaching grammar and writing is a particular interest of mine.
