Robert Powell

Robert Powell has spent a lifetime in education, as a classroom teacher, Head of Department, Head of Year and Deputy Head.

He has written eight books on teaching and learning, his most recent being Personalised Learning in the Classroom, and the highly successful Raising Achievement and Active Whole-Class Teaching. He is renowned for his challenging and humorous style of presentation.
