Welcome to Nitty Gritty Learning

"During my first year of teaching, I have found Lynda’s support and guidance as a subject leader invaluable.  She is a knowledgeable, insightful practitioner whose enthusiasm motivates her pupils as well as her staff. Her vast experience, subject knowledge and excellent interpersonal skills have enabled her to not only run a successful department but also implement and manage a highly successful whole school literacy programme.  It is a pleasure to work alongside someone who is so passionate about education and their subject."

Sara Jackson
Teacher of English


"Lynda has been a motivational manager and Head of English. Her subject knowledge is first class and she can skilfully adapt to new initiatives or the demands of a changing curriculum.

As her Second in Department I have worked closely with her and found her to be clear in her aims and effective in all aspects of leadership. I have very much enjoyed working with her.
"



"Lynda is an outstanding teacher. She displays a great understanding and depth of knowledge of her subject. Her students are engaged in the most innovative and entertaining ways. Lynda’s lessons are stimulating and challenging although she has always ensured that all students are enabled to access the curriculum.
Our loss is your child’s gain.

(She corrects me grammar and spellin and takes the mick out me accent. Glad to see the back!) "

Dave Hunton
Assistant Head Teacher


"Lynda has been incredibly supportive during my NQT year, both on a personal and professional level.  Her knowledge of the national curriculum, as well as her passion and knowledge of her subject, is exceptional and her implementation of new strategies such as the Assessing Pupil Progress tasks into schemes of work has been fantastic, facilitating the department as a whole. Lynda has the ability to make everything run seamlessly and smoothly and it has been a privilege to start my teaching career under her management."
