9780141005225: Head Over Heels in the Dales

Head Over Heels in the Dales is the third volume in Gervase Phinn's bestselling Dales Series

'Could you tell me how to spell "sex" please?'

Gervase Phinn thinks he's heard just about everything in his two years as a school inspector, but a surprising enquiry from an angelic six-year-old reminds him never to take children for granted.

This year Gervase has lots of important things on his mind - his impending marriage to Christine Bentley (the prettiest headteacher for miles around), finding somewhere idyllic to live in the Yorkshire Dales, and the chance of a promotion. All of which generate their fair share of excitement, aided and abetted as usual by his colleagues in the office.

In Head Over Hells in the Dales, join Gervase Phinn in the classroom where he faces his greatest challenge: keeping a straight face as teachers and children alike conspire to have him laughing out loud.

'Gervase Phinn's memoirs have made him a hero in school staff-rooms' Daily Telegraph

Review:

The third in the funny, anecdotal series about life in the Dales from the 'James Herriot' of school inspectors.

About the Author:

Gervase Phinn is a teacher, freelance lecturer, author, poet, school inspector, educational consultant and visiting professor of education - but none of these is more important than his family.

For fourteen years he taught in a range of schools, then acted as General Advisor for Language Development in Rotherham before moving on to North Yorkshire, where he spent ten years as a school inspector - time that has provided so much source material for his books. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and an Honorary Fellow of St John's College, York.

Gervase lives with his family in Doncaster.
