Andrew Atherton

Director of Learning and Research

Having completed an MA in English literature as well as a PhD in 20th-century literature, Andrew decided to make the jump from university to high school teaching. Since then, he has taught English to a range of classes and age groups and held a number of academic positions within the schools where he has taught, both whole school and subject specific. He is currently in the final stages of writing a book, jointly published by Routledge and NATE, titled Experiencing English Literature.
