I am the Head of Science and Technology at a beautiful school in rural Somerset, where I work with a team dedicated to changing the world of education.

Taking inspiration from Kunskapsskolan’s education model, I have worked with Whole Education’s Student Agency in Learning project to develop a curriculum that allows all students to make decisions on what they learn and how they do it. I feel that students should be at the centre of their own education, and should be encouraged to be independent and use their own initiative. Students should be excited by learning.

I am currently researching how the use of technology can impact student outcomes and how it can support teachers in reducing workload.
