His most recent project (6 years) was as the Deputy Principal of Huntingtower in Australia, which he led through significant change as the school sought to move the teaching and learning towards greater focus on the needs of the 21st century person. This meant developing a culture of continuous improvement, and introducing innovative approaches to build new knowledge and to continuously improve, a dynamic middle years programme, and the Harvard Teaching for Understanding framework across the school.

The success of this process was that in 2010 Huntingtower became the only school to achieve student scores in the top 5% of the country without using selecting entry to filter out weaker students. Such a score puts the school’s results comfortably in the top 5% of schools in the world.
