Mary Myatt

Founder
Mary is dead keen on everything that goes on in schools.  

She wanted to capture conversations with colleagues doing interesting work in education. People who are thinking hard about the curriculum, people who are working with our vulnerable pupils, people who are prepared to try new things. 

So she set up Myatt & Co. 

When she’s not online or in meetings, she spends time on the allotment with the Mini Myatts.

Andrew has an unhealthy obsession with all things leadership, especially finding out about all the stuff that he doesn’t actually know, which is lots.

This is why he now runs his own company (Makana Leadership) so that he can help other leaders get better through coaching and support.Talking with really interesting and inspiring people about their leadership journeys and passions is what he enjoys most about Myatt & Co.

When not at work, Andrew spends too much time watching football (Liverpool FC), but gets it spot on when walking for hours with his family and dog.

Jill loved being a head, but since stepping back from headship in 2010 and getting involved in different kinds of leadership development work, she finds she loves the balance in her life even more.

She's especially enjoyed interviewing a range of edu-authors for Myatt & Co. Reading about, writing about and talking about education still lights her fire!

When she isn't on Twitter, she can usually be found sitting in the sun somewhere reading a good novel.

John Tomsett

John taught in secondary schools for 33 years and for 18 of those years he was a
headteacher.

Having begun working in a sixth form college, he now thinks the real work goes on in Early Years!

His pacemaker reminds him every day of his own mortality, so, before it is too late, he is keen to both learn more about the best that is going on in our schools and to offer to the next generation of people working in the education sector any snippets of wisdom he may have gleaned from his time teaching.

He pursues salmon when not working, but so far he has only ever caught one of
them.
