Ofsted's likely new boss

Ruth Tarrant

20th June 2016

Sir Michael Wilshaw will be stepping down as head of Ofsted and is highly likely to be replaced by Amanda Spielman. Whereas Sir Michael has been known as a rather outspoken, and at times controversial character, he had one big thing going for him - plenty of experience (26 years!) on the frontline as a headteacher in London focusing on improving schools in deprived areas. Ms Spielman? The BBC describes her as a "backroom operator" who helped set up the Ark academy chain and has chaired Ofqual.
