Vice Principal of Lightcliffe Academy in Yorkshire. Some time blogger, all time thinker. Father, husband, cyclist, geek & Evertonian.

This site has collated my writings from the past 9 years of infrequent blogging including (2007-2008), (2008-2011) and (2011-2015).

My thoughts on education have changed a great deal over those 9 years, some of it makes me cringe. But reflecting on my own learning is powerful and combining those three sites into one for posterity is nice to see.

This site is published on Known. They offer a fantastic service at free and paid levels, with discounts for educators. Your writing is your data and is always available for you to download. You can blog from Known and also post to your favourite social networks whilst retaining ownership of that data. Their platform could make a fantastic platform for use in schools - do check it out.
