After a first degree in theoretical physics from Durham I spent a year at Oxford and then began teaching science. I moved down to West Sussex in the early eighties as a Head of Physics and then Head of Science in a very large secondary school on the coast. After some years in school senior leadership in another West Sussex school I was appointed Headteacher of a secondary school in Hampshire. I was there for ten years before becoming Her Majesty’s Inspector of Education with Ofsted for nine years. In my semi-retirement I now run my own school improvement consultancy business. My children attended Bishop Luffa and I became a Director to help to ensure that every Luffa student here now gets a similarly high quality of education and care that both of them benefited from and enjoyed.
