Favourite Educational Blogs

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I had a recent article request from the The Education Foundation, the UK’s Education Think Tank, for an article on ‘The Rise of Teacher Blogger’.

What other teacher blogs do I follow?

One key question for me to consider was; ‘What other teacher blogs do I follow? If yes, which ones and why?’

I have never written my favourite educational blogs down into a blogpost before, simply because I am quite happy to read content via my professional learning network on Twitter. This allows my audience to self-curate ‘good’ content for me to read.

It is impossible to read everything and be in front of a digital device all of the time, but there are blogs that I will regularly return to for content and advice. So, if I had to put them down on paper, I have listed my top educational blogs below, which are in no particular order:

My favourite educational blogs:



Teaching and Learning; Policies and all things educational:



Musings on education and parenting:

Since I last updated this list, I am considering adding @DebraKidd and @HeyMissSmith.


In 2010, Ross Morrison McGill founded @TeacherToolkit from a simple Twitter account in which he rapidly became the 'most followed teacher on social media in the UK'. In 2015, he was nominated for '500 Most Influential People in Britain' in The Sunday Times as one of the most influential in the field of education - he remains the only classroom teacher to feature to this day ... Sharing online as @TeacherToolkit, he rebuilt this website (c2008) into what you are now reading, as one of the 'most influential blogs on education in the UK', winning the number one spot at the UK Blog Awards (2018). Today, he is currently a PGCE tutor and is researching 'social media and its influence on education policy' for his EdD at Cambridge University. In 1993, he started teaching and is an experienced school leader working in some of the toughest schools in London. He is also a former Teaching Awards winner for 'Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School, London' (2004) and has written several books on teaching (2013-2018). Read more...
