Where Will I Do My Pineapples? is not about a new building, it is about building a whole new school and the struggle, against all odds, to keep people and learning at the centre of the whole project.

It’s about how to manage change and deal with the pressures of the day job at the same time. Perhaps more significantly, it’s about people and the potential to change thousands of lives.

Written from the perspective of a senior leader, with many amusing and bizarre stories, this book describes how to keep sound educational principles at the heart of a project to build a new school.
