I started to write about transformation being the starting point for Boundless Learning, then scribbled that out, because I realised I’d always been Boundless Learning -it’s just now that i am ready to share it widely, and my own horizons are expanding. I am fortunate to be working with passion and purpose to inspire learning… Continue reading The future is Boundless
For so long I have pondered the question of what it is that drives me – I’m passionate about inspiring others to succeed. However, I have a broad range of skills. I’ve always been this way. never one for just exploring one path. I guess this is what took me down a multi-disciplinary degree route.… Continue reading Creative connections
I have loved seeing all the tweets related to preparation for return to school this week. Feelings are mixed because I miss having a school of my own to return to, and the joyful feeling of connection, the buzz of excitement and hope at the start of an academic year. Now I’m focused on enabling… Continue reading Stepping out and New Horizons
Today I am taking a trip to London. It’s my first trip on a train for a long time and I’ll admit, although I’m excited, I’m also apprehensive. Meanwhile, it’s end of term where I live, and even though I’m not in school as a headteacher any more, the children and staff I have worked… Continue reading Journeying
I’ve been mulling over some questions that floated my way on a sea of Boundless Learning talk. One was about teaching Greater Depth in Reading, the other was about how to fit in Reading for Enjoyment. I am a reader-I can’t really remember learning to read, and I see coloured images in my head.

Last week, I led a session where I asked, ‘What has inspired you this week?” This was at the start of a journey of discovery with an amazing group of people and their comments were inspirational nuggets of hopes in story form. I always find I return to the importance of stories, the intertwined events… Continue reading The stuff of legends
I’ve had a few coaching conversations over the last few days about purpose, exploring and unravelling pathways. It’s something I revisit regularly, consider what moves me, what drives me and if how I am living aligns with my values and sense of purpose. I wonder if, after the demands of surviving through the mire of… Continue reading Why?

It is from these early experiences our brain develops connections, frames of reference, and… Continue reading All the world’s our stage-let’s play!
I’m not going to lie, I sometimes worry about what I write because I don’t feel as wise as some people who I view as experts, but sometimes things burn away inside, and it’s time to stand up and enter the arena.I’m calling out on my own vulnerabilities. I believe Sir John Jones calls called… Continue reading Behave? I always behave…
I mentioned yesterday that I started to write a book, then my world changed and the story flipped. So that story lies waiting for me, not to rebuild it, but to create a new pathway for it – to meet new characters in the form of narratives that have touched my life, and my learning,… Continue reading Change the plot
