Boost your School's Learning Potential with a Thriving Library




Welcome to the world of school libraries, where the possibilities for students' growth are endless. Whether you have a school library or not, the mere fact that you're reading this means you're open to the idea of what a library can do for your school. With a well-equipped library, you'll see an improvement in your students' independent learning, literacy, and overall well-being. And, if you're looking for ideas or need guidance, I'm here to help.

Training and Support

I offer training both in person and online, in the following areas:

  • The role of the school librarian in inquiry learning

  • How to use your school library and librarian to support inquiry learning across your curriculum

  • Maximizing the value of your school library management system

  • Media and information literacy

  • Digital citizenship and social media

  • Fake news and misinformation

  • Literacy and reading promotion

  • Technology integration

  • EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) and the FOSIL (Framework of Skills for Inquiry Learning) process

  • IFLA School Library Guidelines for librarians and teachers

Membership Benefits

With my membership packages, you'll get access to all my training materials and ongoing support. You'll also have the opportunity to connect with other teachers and librarians who are just as passionate about their libraries. And, if you need personal support, I offer mentoring sessions to help you along the way.

Why Choose Me?

I'm an award-winning librarian with over 20 years of experience in school libraries. With my post-16 teaching qualification, I'm equipped to bring your library to the forefront of your school's curriculum. I've provided training for organizations like Leigh Academy Trust, CILIP, and Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, and have spoken at events like BETT Show, ResearchEd National Conference, and the Australia School Library Association Conference.

As a consultant, I've worked on projects like the Warwickshire Great School Libraries Project and Blanchelande College in Guernsey, where I set up a new library and introduced the use of FOSIL. I'm here to support not just your library staff, but also your teachers and support staff, to make sure your library integrates seamlessly into your student's education.
