About Me

The Old Grey Owl is the Twitter name of Rob Barron, blogging from the perspective of someone looking back on their career as a teacher. After over thirty years in Secondary schools in Greater London and beyond, and with twenty years in Senior Leadership Teams, I retired with grey hair, bruises and tales to tell. Now, I’m writing, blogging and doing a bit of Teacher Training. This blog is a shambolic ramble, musing on Education, Culture, Politics, with a little bit of creative writing thrown in.
