In 2011, I started to write a blog about my life leading a PE Department. Since then, my journey has evolved from leading a high performing team within a single sex all boys Comprehensive, which was then put into special measures, converting to a co-educational academy, becoming an Assistant Principal and a Specialist Leader in Education involving outreach work across the Cabot Learning Federation and beyond.
The blog was titled “Achieving Excellence Through PE” and can be found by clicking on the link. All of the posts can also be found in this blog.
Since my promotion into senior leadership (in September 2012), I have found it more and more of a challenge to find the time to write about my learning; choosing to prioritise my work directly relating to school and spending any remaining time (!) with the family.
Leading in Education will now become my blog home, where posts on all things related to leading in education, will be published.
I hope you enjoy it.
