I am currently a Head of Year, Teacher of English and Film Studies and Lead Practitioner at Barton Court Grammar School, an Advanced Thinking School. Throughout my 15-year teaching career I have also been a Head of English and had responsibility for various teaching and learning initiatives. I am passionate about the ways in which Thinking Routines and Thinking Tools can develop teaching practice and support students with recall, retrieval, knowledge acquisition and skills development, amongst many other benefits.
