Interests : After graduating in 1995, I flirted briefly with the idea of being a theatre director, having spent probably as much time in the student theatre as "front of house" in maths lectures. However, starving in a garret didn't really appeal as a career goal, so I started teaching Maths in April 1996. I became Head of Department at Highgate School in September 2000, and over the next twelve years took on a range of project development and leadership roles in the school, becoming a Deputy Head in 2008. In January 2012 I was appointed to be the founding Headteacher of the London Academy of Excellence, the first 16-19 sixth form to open as part of the "free school" programme. I joined the NCETM as Director for Secondary in June 2014, where I had the wonderful opportunity - the wonderful privilege - to co-lead the England-Shanghai Teaching for Mastery teacher exchanges and research projects, and to support Maths Hubs as they started to develop 't4m' in their schools.

In 2016 I decided I wanted to return to classroom teaching and to practice what I'd been preaching, so I joined the Harris Federation, a large MAT with over 40 schools (primary and secondary) in London. I was a teaching and learning consultant, supporting the maths departments in a number of the Harris academies. Based at Chobham Academy in Stratford, East London, I taught Years 4, 5 and 7. Currently I am Deputy Director (Maths) for the Atlas Teaching School Partnership, in which role I support the seven schools (three secondaries, four primaries) within the Haberdashers' Aske's Federation, and I steer the maths aspects of Atlas TSA's school improvement work across the borough of Lewisham. In parallel, I have an advisory role with Oxford University Press: I am the UK Consultant for “Discovering Mathematics”, a new suite of KS3 resources that closely follows a highly successful Singaporean scheme, and also am a Series Editor of a new programme of materials, resources and CPD for teachers of maths in primary. I am still closely involved with the Maths Hubs and the NCETM, and at the moment am leading work groups for London Thames and London North East Hubs. I am an experienced school governor, in both primary and secondary schools.
