Throughout our journey towards outstanding, Fiona has played an absolutely integral role in enhancing the professional development of all teaching staff.

Jane Green : National Leader of Education. Director of Strategic Programmes for The Harmony Trust

I have asked Fiona to support a number of schools in very challenging circumstances in a wide range of capacities and she has provided bespoke CPD for whole teams as well as coaching and mentoring support for individual staff. Feedback has always been extremely positive. Supported staff have drastically increased their knowledge, skills and understanding in all aspects of teaching and learning.


The best CPD I've attended for a long time! (CPD package: Making Good progress :What do we know really works?)


Brilliantly delivered and so much to take back and implement into our practice (Developing a Reading for Pleasure Pedagogy).

Subject Leader (KS1 School)

Thank you for today! Not only did it spark inspiration it embedded my reading philosophy so I can move reading forward. (Coaching session on leading reading)

Linda Sullivan: Headteacher

Thank you Fiona!

As a head teacher in an inner city school in a requires improvement category I needed to act fast to raise standards and improve teaching and learning in school.

Through working alongside all staff to identify their own strengths and weaknesses and develop their practice you lifted our spirits, inspired our teaching and enabled our pupils to be good learners.

Within a year we were a good school, not through using bolt on methods or quick fixes but by deepening our understanding of education for long term success and sustainability.

You are a true inspiration.

Jonathan Gallimore, Executive Head teacher and Derby Hub Director for Derby Diocesan Academy Trust

Fiona’s experience and passion for learning and language has been instrumental in leading and inspiring new approaches to the teaching of reading and writing across our schools. Her knowledge of current developments and strategies has had a significant impact on the shape of our curriculum and on the improvements of the provision all our children receive. Thank you Fiona.

Paul Rose Managing Director YouTeachMe Ltd Formerly Headteacher, Ridgeway Infant School, Derby

Fiona is one of those rare education professionals; she possesses deep subject knowledge, incredible communication skills and the emotional intelligence to take teachers with her on a journey of professional development. Fiona's contribution to our school was huge; her work significantly improved teaching and led directly to a rapid increase in academic achievement. Most importantly though, she helped us develop knowledgeable, reflective and confident teachers.
