About Charlie

Charlie Comerford is a Vice Principal working in South London, passionate about personal development, curriculum and developing teaching to enable great learning.

He began his career as a teacher of Citizenship and Politics having studied the Citizenship with Humanities PGCE at the University of Exeter. Charlie has taught across a wide range of subjects also including Sociology, Religious Studies, Law, Psychology, Geography and History. 


In his current role, Charlie oversees all areas of Quality of Education, with a focus on curriculum leadership. Before this role, as a middle and then senior leader, Charlie's focus was on whole school personal development, challenge for more able students and curriculum area leadership. In Charlie's previous role he was a assistant head at an Outstanding large secondary in South East London.


Charlie begun reading educational literature and engaging in online educational discussion voraciously from around 2016, and has been through countless epiphanies, forehead-slapping moments and embarrassing about-turns since then. 

This blog was/is a chance for Charlie to put some thoughts to e-paper and hopefully offer some good ideas and advice to colleagues working on similar (and different) remits up and down the country.


Charlie is keen to link with other teachers and share ideas and best practice. Charlie can be contacted by email or twitter.
