Welcome to my website, a loose collection of blogposts, articles and links to the various things I’m currently involved with.
I am a contributor to the Blue Labour book (insightful reviews in the New Statesman here), and also worked on its close kin, Red Tory. I have written for numerous publications and have been involved in various public debates, as well as giving various papers and keynotes, many of which will find their way back on to here eventually. If you have 15 minutes to spare you can also find a talk I gave on the BBC here.
I currently work for a federation of Catholic schools in north Cumbria – I have been a middle leader in the secondary sector and am now an Executive Head in the primary sector. I have given various bits of CPD and support to schools on a range of topics. I’m also on the advisory council for Parents and Teachers for Excellence and can be found on Twitter under the username @Michael_Merrick
