Specialist Leaders in Education

Lesley Brenton


During my teaching career I have worked in both mixed and single sexed multicultural schools in Canada, New Zealand and recently London for the past 10 years. Currently I am at Burntwood School as Head of Science teacher with multiple responsibilities. They include overseeing 20 teachers across the 3 Science specialism, 4 technicians as well as overseeing the vocational curriculum and working with local Primaries in the community liaison role. My community liaison role involves supporting non-specialist Primary teachers and delivering the National Science Curriculum to enthuse students. I also work with the Primary students to stretch the more able as well as deliver lessons to Key Stage 2 classes.

I am able to provide support for

  • Department leaders
  • NQTs
  • Non-specialist teachers
  • Moderation of coursework
  • Schemes of learning
  • Organisation and structure of assessments
  • Tracking and monitoring of progress
