Current position
Head of Physics at Devizes School, Wiltshire

Training

  • BEng, University of Bristol
  • MSc Environmental Engineering, Imperial College
  • PGCE University of Hertfordshire

Career
Ten years in industry in the South East before starting a teaching career in Wiltshire

Aim/mission
I aim to develop an enthusiastic interest in Physics resulting in increasing A-Level numbers by establishing a reliable network of support for physics teachers.

I strongly believe that an enthusiastic approach to teaching Physics is based on delivering the subject confidently, and I want local teachers to benefit from the sharing of ideas and good practice.

Personal interests
I have 3 young children who take up most of my time – but their toys are very useful for physics practical ideas (especially Hot Wheels tracks!). I also enjoy surfing when I’m visiting relatives in Cornwall.
