Our Story

After working in education over ten years I still love what I get to do each and every day. Bringing fun, excitement, creativity and wonder into a class and staffroom is something I aim to do each and every day. 

(And since becoming a dad last year, I get to try that out at home each and every day…even before, during and after a horrible nappy change).

Whilst things won’t ever be perfect, that’s actually the best part. I choose to see every mistake and failure as an opportunity to discover or learn something new.

Why? Because schools should be the kind of places that everyone – teachers and parents included – wants to be a part of.

Where you can’t wait to discover what might happen next.

Where you get to become that best You through succeeding and failing. 

Upgrade Think Learn was created to share positivity, enthusiasm and a genuine belief in teaching and education in all its forms.

Every week our purpose is to make you smile, nod your head and discover some new insight through the stories and experiences of success or failure shared each week.

In the end, it is all about helping others, because we can.

Ready for some smiling and head nodding?
