Grade Gain by Neil Crumpton

I am currently a Head of Science at a rural Secondary School and I have a background in Telecomms and Software Engineering. I can occasionally be found on BBC Radio Shropshire as their Science Teacher. I enjoy finding innovative ways to help students revise and have developed the Grade Gain app for Science revision.
