Background I spent 10 years teaching at Framwellgate School in Durham, where I held responsibilities in both an academic and pastoral context. I also held responsibility for the use of ICT in PE in County Durham, where I trained staff in the use of Dartfish, an analytic performance software.

I am now in my 4th year as HOD at St. Robert of Newminster RC School, Washington. I have also held responsibilities as a temporary HOH on two occasions.

In terms of teaching experience, I have taught across the full range of Keystages, with exam experience in all major courses (GCSE, GCE, BTEC National). The PE department has had very strong results across these courses over a period of time, with positive residuals on pupil performance consistently high.
