Barnaby Lenon

This research, written by the former Head Teacher of Harrow, provides a critical overview of the school system in England and the effectiveness of recent government reforms; he looks at recent research on interventions and discusses how parents and governors can achieve results by focussing on the school curriculum, exam systems and social mobility. He covers technical topics such as comparable outcomes, grade inflation and curriculum review. As well as that, Lenon shares his experience of successful schools that he has visited across the world, providing a number of case studies of successful schools with innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
