I am the Headteacher of Lodge Park Academy in Corby.  This is my dream job, in my home town. Follow Lodge Park Academy on Twitter @lodgeparkacad, on Instagram @lodge_park_academy or follow our Facebook page. We’re a school to keep an eye on!

You can contact me on or via Twitter DM.

This website is where I post my old blogs, and any new blogs that I have the time to write. I also post links to any articles that I write, or which feature LPA. I’m really proud to use this site to host guest-blogs by my friends and colleagues. You can access all the blogs via the menu on the right hand side.

An education enthusiast, I speak and present at local and national education events, such as #ResearchED, #BrewED and #WomenED. I am proud to be a Member for Northampton Primary Academy Trust and part of the DfE support and challenge group for the NPQs and ECF. I am a member of the East Midlands Headteacher forum for Teach First and I facilitate the NPQH for Ambition Institute.

In May 2020, I gave a talk as part of ResearchEdHome on Love and Knowledge in Leadership. You can watch it here
