About Me

I am the Executive Headteacher of Simon de Senlis Primary School and currently work across eleven primary schools as the Education Director of Northampton Primary Academy Trust.  I am a former Advanced Skills Teacher who has spent the last 17 years leading in schools across different contexts, counties and countries.  I have spent the last 10 years as a Headteacher in Northamptonshire.

In between Headships, I experienced life in industry via an 18 month secondment in the EdTech industry working alongside schools, academies, local authorities and multi-national companies.

I am married  with three beautiful children, occasionally play in a Beatles Tribute Band and am the Chairman of Ups ‘n’ Downs – a local charity supporting families affected by Down’s syndrome.

My book, Wholesome Leadership, is being published this May by John Catt Educational – you  can read more about this at www.wholesomeleadershipbook.com
