Hello, my name is Henry Sauntson; I am a Secondary English teacher, Professional Tutor and SCITT Leadership member based in the East Midlands, UK.I have been teaching for nearly 15 years now and during that time have had experience of roles in Department leadership, Senior Leadership (Teaching & Learning, Professional Development) and Pastoral leadership. I am an SLE for my local Teaching School and a Senior Subject Lead for their SCITT. I was recently privileged and honoured to be accepted as a Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching and for a Fellowship with CollectiveED. As well as practising my trade in the classroom I love to help teach others, from pre-service upwards – I facilitate face-to-face days for NPQ qualifications and also organize and host a range of evidence-informed Professional Learning sessions for colleagues in my Teaching School Alliance. I am married and have 3 young children, all of whom I am sure will test me to rein in my ‘teacher persona’ at their respective Parents’ Evenings in the future! I must resist the urge to make too many comments… When not teaching and not trying to be the best dad I can be I love to read and write about education – putting evidence and research into practice and looking for what works – and also to indulge in those finer things of life: red wine, gin, golf and cricket (although I can’t play the latter anymore!). I struggle to combine them all at the same time though! I’m a lover of drama too, and often can be found quoting Shakespeare at students, mainly for own amusement.
