Headmaster of Charles Darwin Grammar School
Appearing in the Third Series of That'll Teach 'em on Channel 4
Now due to start on April the 4th on Channel 4 at 9pm
Last summer (2005) the third and final series of That'll teach 'em was filmed.
This time the theme is Boys versus Girls.
The Boys Versus Girls series pits the sexes against one another.
Recent reports suggest that boys are falling behind girls in their exam results.
It also is reported that their is a lack of interest in the sciences as practical experiments are replaced by computers and coursework.
In this series, thirty 15-year-olds are transported back in time to a 1950s boarding grammar school and divided into single sex classes to see whether teaching boys and girls separately improves grades.
Will the boys close the gap, or will the girls stretch their lead?
Can an old-fashioned curriculum spark a passion for science?
This series bubbles with thrills, spills and explosions in the science lab as modern-day education is compared with teaching styles of the past.
