Katy McWean, English Consultant

(01257) 516426


Prior to taking on the role of Lancashire Secondary Consultant for English and Literacy, Katy worked as a English teacher for nearly twenty-three years in a large successful English department in a 11-18 school, working as Head of English for twelve of those years and a variety of significant leadership roles prior to this. Katy is vehemently passionate about her subject, and prides herself on her excellent working relationships based on trust and mutual respect.

As a highly experienced English practitioner, Katy's consultant role primarily involves providing bespoke support for English departments according to need, running English training courses and hosting termly English subject leader meetings. Katy is particularly proud that feedback from such sessions is consistently excellent. Typical delegate comments from recent courses include: 'Fantastic …I have taken so much from it.', 'really useful and thought provoking' course, and 'I really enjoyed the session'.

Outside of work, when not watching her beloved Liverpool Football Club, Katy loves nothing better than curling up with a good book; however, if you were to ask her what is her favourite, she would not be able to tell you – she has far too many!
