About me

I’m Anthony Cockerill.

I began my career teaching English — and continue to work as Head of Department — in a North Yorkshire secondary school. I began blogging about teaching English, writing and the written word a number of years ago.

As my blog has continued to grow, there have been many great opportunities to share ideas and support others, such as contributing to professional networks, leading a writing workshop at NATE’s 2019 conference and delivering an address at Government Events’ Delivering Excellence in Teaching English in Schools Conference 2022.

I’ve written features for NATE’s Teaching English and for Teach Secondary, and I’m currently exploring ways to expand the scope of my feature writing.
