Current position
Head of Physics, Linlithgow Academy, West Lothian.

Initial training
Started teaching in 1973 – it can’t be that long!

(Head of Physics departments for 26 years – this is making me feel old – I don’t feel old!). I have been Head of Physics at two very “different” schools. I have also in the past had “narrow escapes” from school management!

Personal interests
Football (Celtic have always been my team!) – ex-professional player – not good enough to make a career of it!
