I’m very pleased to have been given the opportunity to contribute to The Future of Assessment, a collection of essays for AQA – with huge thanks to Dale Bassett for inviting me to join the group.  It was fascinating to meet the other contributors.

My essay, A National Baccalaureate for England,  can be read in full here:

A launch event was held at the House of Commons in the Churchill Room on July 8th  and I was invited to give a short speech – a massive thrill for me.

I took some of my students along for the experience, and my colleague Rachel Landon, Assistant Head, responsible for student leadership (amongst many other things.)
