I taught for 36 years; 27 as a Senior Manager; 18 as a secondary Headteacher. I have run one of the most socially disadvantaged secondary schools in the North West of England, and, also, one of the most successful. I loved both schools, and relished the role I fulfilled.
I have been a governor at five secondary schools and three primary schools; and an Interim Executive Board member at two secondary schools and two primary schools.
