Who Are You?


The Girl on the Piccadilly Line is a teacher, middle leader and writer. She lives in North London with her husband Tim (also a teacher, school leader and writer.) Her days are spent teaching, writing, eating cheese, worrying about politics and winning at Scrabble.

“The Girl on the Piccadilly Line” launched in 2015 to as a way of documenting the trials, triumphs and tribulations of being a senior leader in a challenging school. The blog struck a chord with teachers around the world and received an overwhelming response including winning a UK Blog Award and being shortlisted for a TES award. However the real highlight to date was the wonderfully surreal moment when Jane Garvey read this┬ápiece on Woman’s Hour.

Her first book, “How To Be An Outstanding Primary Middle Leader” was published in November 2018 and her second book, “The Grammar Book” was published in June 2020.
