Tom Sherrington

Virtual Presenter


My name is Tom Sherrington.  I am an experienced former Headteacher and teacher and, having worked in schools for 30 years starting my training in 1986, I am now exploring the world of education consultancy to see where it takes me.

Through my consultancy – teacherhead consulting – I  am interested in working with teachers and school leaders to explore and implement contemporary educational ideas that help us deliver an excellent all-round education for all young people. Hopefully the range of posts in my blogs will give an idea of the scope of what that covers. I regularly contribute to conferences and CPD sessions locally and nationally and I’m busy working in schools and colleges across the country and around the world.

In May 2014, I published my first book, Teach Now! Science. The Joy of Teaching Science.  It may not be the most comprehensive book you’ll ever read but hopefully it serves as a handy rough guide for new teachers and trainees. It actually received one of the worst reviews any book could ever have “1 star: Fear for your children” – but don’t let that put you off.

In October 2017, I published The Learning Rainforest: Great teaching in real classroom with John Catt Ltd.  It’s been selling really well and I’m delighted by the reviews and general response. I’ve explored the content of the book in this blog.  Since then I’ve published more books and I’m now working with Oliver Caviglioli and John Catt Ltd as partners running
