Lead Subject Mentor for History
I have carried out a wide range of departmental and whole school responsibilities and initiatives, since qualifying as a teacher in 1998. I have been a set up a History department from scratch in a new school, which was rated as outstanding by Ofsted and an HMI inspector, who subsequently visited. This enabled me to become second in charge of a large Humanities faculty in my third year of teaching.
