COVID-19 impacted every aspect of education through 2020, but at RHS, we were ahead of the curve having started our digital learning journey back in 2013 when we started to invest in EdTech. So, when the government instructed schools across the UK to close on 20th March, and school leaders waited for guidance as to how to proceed with teaching and which pupils were eligible to attend school, we were able to ...

I can remember it now. The silence. The momentary contemplation. The first time sitting in the headteacher’s chair with the door closed, on my own.

At 27, I’ve been told that I was most likely the youngest deputy head in the local authority of Sandwell. On paper, it looks like I’...
