Immediately after leaving The College of Ripon and York St. John I began teaching in Kings Lynn, Norfolk. It was at the peak of Princess Diana and Fergie hysteria so, as I had to drive home through the Queen's Sandringham estate, I would often pass the royals enjoying their weekends away from London. With a few years' teaching experience I embarked on an Advanced Diploma in Education working with the inspirational Mary Jane Drummond, a tutor at the Cambridge Institute of Education. From Norfolk I moved to Shropshire to head up English in a large junior school. The National Curriculum was introduced during my time there. Being a glutton for punishment, I decided to study for a Masters Degree, travelling to Chester College once a week after school. I then moved as Deputy Head to a school in Lincolnshire where we experienced the very first primary OFSTED inspection. The experience encouraged me to spend a year seconded from my job to inspect schools around England for OFSTED and I achieved registered inspector status. However, missing working with children and developing staff, I returned to working in school as a headteacher in Lincolnshire where I stayed for 3 years before moving north to become the headteacher of Seaburn Dene Primary School in 2000. You will often find me working with children as they are my motivation to build a school where they feel safe and where they develop a love of learning that will follow them through their whole life.
