About Jennifer Webb
Jennifer Webb is a Teacher and Assistant Principal working in a busy secondary school.
I am a teacher, leader, author, blogger and speaker.
I am currently Assistant Principal for Teaching and Learning at Trinity Academy Cathedral, an outstanding state secondary school in Wakefield. Over the course of my career I have worked at a number of other schools in West Yorkshire as a Head of English, an AST and a Lead Practitioner. I am the author of the best-selling books, ‘How to Teach English Literature: Overcoming Cultural Poverty’ (2019), ‘Teach Like a Writer’ (2020) and ‘The Metacognition Handbook’ (2021). I look forward to the 2023 publication of ‘Essential Grammar: What Every Secondary English Teacher Needs To Know’, which I have written with Marcello Giovanelli and will be published by Routledge.
I provide online CPD for teachers, and raise funds for a number of charities through ticket and recording sales.
I feel privileged to work with a highly talented and dynamic team, learning that leadership is hard but rewarding, and that mistakes are gold dust if you embrace them.
I’m mum to two beautiful boys; the most important and challenging job in the world!
I blog in order to develop myself, reflect on my experiences and share good practice.
