Biographical Information

"Mike’s career in education and public services began in 1972, teaching in a large comprehensive school in the West Midlands. In 2002, thirty years and four headships later, he joined the Senior Civil Service as the founding Lead Director of The Innovation Unit. The Innovation Unit was inspired by the Education Secretary as a way of connecting the ambition of government with the expertise of the country’s best and most innovative educational practitioners here and abroad. In 2006 Mike became The Innovation Unit’s first Chief Executive when it subsequently became independent of government. The Unit with its unique mission of connecting practitioners with policy makers now has links with education in all parts of the globe.

"Mike has led four large schools, three in the Midlands and the North and then became Principal and Chief Executive of a 3-18 International School in Brussels with students from 65 different countries.

"Mike has just successfully completed a role as CEO of The Richard Rose Federation of Academies."[1] He is a founder member of the Governing Council of the National College for School Leadership.
