John started working with Alps in 2008, while he was working at Little Heath Comprehensive School. At Little Heath, John used Alps to achieve top 2% performance in value-added terms. He also worked with schools regionally and nationally through the Raising Achievement Partnership Programme. Since leaving Little Heath in 2010, John additionally works as an associate for 22 secondary schools through PiXL.

Interesting fact: In Sixth Form John’s Headmaster told him ‘nobody in this school can think of anything good to say about you in your university reference’. Needless to say, he had no university interviews just straight rejections. The rest, as they say, is history.
