Daniel was honoured to receive the Bolton award for the highest overall mark achieved on his degree course. Daniel went on to complete his teacher training with Sheffield Hallam University and the Sheffield Institute of Education where he worked closely with the highly preforming Outwood Grange Academies Trust, which works in largely deprived schools, where he worked to enhance the lives of those in the most difficult schools. Since then, Daniel has worked in a variety of setting, working most recently with Darton Academy and Delta Academies Trust.
Daniel has led the Physics Curriculum during his time at Darton, focusing on improving student progress; the makeup of the curriculum to incorporate the new British curriculum and changing the impression of the subject to improve take up at A-level.
Daniel has led a number of trips. The most memorable trips he has run were to the South of France, to canoe a 32km stretch of the Ardeche river, and a trip to the European Space Agency’s offices in Frascatti (Rome), where students were involved with working with the centre for Earth Observations, thanks to his contacts within the ESA.
Outside of school, Daniel’s main interests are walking and travelling and he loves to combine these two interests. Throughout, the school holidays, he will be jetting off to explore historical sites or enjoy new cultures.
