About Anthony Clive Davies

I am one of the founding Directors of Focus working with schools both nationally and internationally. I draw on a vast experience, including work as a headteacher, Ofsted inspector, trainer and consultant.

I have a wealth of experience working with schools to analyse their current position and supporting leaders to construct purposeful and fit-for-purpose self-evaluation systems which impact on pupil outcomes. Over recent years, I have been focusing particularly on the development of an approach to leading and delivering the curriculum which ensures a high degree of engagement for children. This approach to the curriculum is being used in schools across England. I am one of the innovators for the learning challenge curriculum which has gained national acclaim for its success. I work in all areas of school improvement and works from early years through the secondary phase.

Previous Experience

As a Headteacher, my school gained a National Curriculum Award and featured in the TES as one of three schools recognised for its quality practice. I have a national and international reputation as an authoritative speaker. I have recently worked in the Middle East, Europe and Japan.

Other Information

I have written a wide range of publications which have become known for their straight forward and useful style; helping school leaders focus on what is most important to making a difference, including the best-selling ‘Raising Standards by Setting Targets’. Some of my most recent publications are:

The Science Learning Challenge Curriculum
The History/Geography Learning Challenge Curriculum
Weaving Knowledge, Skills and Understanding into the new National Curriculum
Talk for Success
