I started teaching in 2007 as a Teach First participant in Science. I have worked in four other schools across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire as well as working across all schools in the Nova Education Trust as the Science Subject Director. Previously I have worked as Head of Year and Progress Leader at Arnold Hill Academy securing significant improvements in GCSE results in 2014. I moved to work at the David Nieper Academy in Derbyshire as Head of Science leading a significant improvement in the number of students making good progress in Science.
After this I took on the role as Subject Director for Science at Nova Education Trust, developing the science curriculum and helping to improve teaching across science in the Trust. I have also held the role of Assistant Headteacher at Kirk Hallam Academy.
I specialise in curriculum development, staff development, tracking and the use of date and raising achievement.
