I’m Nic and I’m an experienced English teacher, education writer and examiner.

My blog was created to support awesome, hardworking, dedicated new GCSE English teachers with ideas, activities and resources for the teaching of GCSE English. I know the job can be somewhat of a challenge (!) but it is balanced out with those wonderful moments that make it the best job in the world. This blog provides resources and ideas, specifically aimed at GCSE, to save you time and help you and your learners thrive in the classroom because at the end of the day, that’s what it is all about.

I have a lifelong love of learning and helping others so I’m excited that this blog is another tool for me to do so. I’m also currently studying for a Master’s in Education with a focus on GCSE English, so this is a great platform to share some of the helpful research I come across.

If you’d like to have ideas, activities and resources delivered straight to your inbox (and be in with a chance of winning a £10 Amazon voucher to feed your book addiction) please feel free to join my mailing list. You can also follow me on most social media channels with the links to the right.

Thanks for reading and please feel free to get in touch!
