I’ve written two articles on this year’s (hopefully unique) A level results. Here is my first piece, in TES, anticipating the storm we’re currently living through. And here is my latest piece for The Critic, on how the government made a crisis something much, much worse.
My latest column for the TES on the unusual position independent schools are in between academic years.
I have written a column for the TES on the latest IB examinations, and the difficulties are causing students and schools. You can find it here.
This week 152 writers spoke out about the ‘cancel’ culture in Harper’s magazine. I had a problem with their use (or non-use) of language. I wrote about it The Critic.
Here is my latest article for The Critic, on decolonising the curriculum.
Here is a link to article I wrote for The Critic on teaching unions and their response to the Covid-19 crisis.
Here is a link to an article I wrote recently on how the Covid-19 pandemic could kill off significant sections of UK indpendenent schools. I argue that the UK government should step in to try to save such a significant employer (but probably won’t).
I have written this column for the TES on what schools should think about retaining post-Covid.
Here are some links to articles I have had published recently.

I was asked to write an article for The Copyright Licensing Authority on why teachers should write. You can find it here.
And here is an article I wrote for Odgers on vocational pathways in education.
Here’s my review of Great Minds and How to Grow Them, in the TES.
