Having been Head of Science for the past 17 years I have become one of the old-timers of the School. Both my children have spent time at the School with Lucy leaving the Upper 6 last summer.
In my new role I am looking at curriculum and progress across the school. In terms of curriculum I shall be looking at provision across the entire school liaising with Junior School, HoFs and other relevant staff. I will be particularly interested to be involved in adapting the curriculum to best suit pupils' needs in an ever-changing world.
I have also been tasked with developing interdisciplinary learning to ensure effective teaching and learning across the school and also the development of e-learning as we continue to move into a digital age.
In terms of monitoring progress, I am looking to develop a more pupil centred system for tracking the progress of pupils across the entire school
