Aaron Wilkes

If you don't get students' attention quickly - and with something that they can relate to - then you sink, fast!

Born in 1973, Aaron Wilkes is now one of the leading history authors in school publishing as well as being Head of History at Castle High School, Dudley. Aaron knows how important it is to always be armed with a bank of tasks to stretch and challenge more able students. He's a firm believer that lessons need to have pace, impact and grab the attention of students. His time at Castle High has given him the experience of five OFSTED inspections and taking two form classes through from year 7 to 11. It is this experience that gives him a good bank of knowledge and first-hand practical experience to draw on. Aaron's KS3 History series, which is familiar to many teachers nationwide, has a concept and approach which continues to prove strong: it creates attention-grabbing, visually stimulating textbooks that focus on the three things that 11 year olds enjoy reading most about - blood, fighting and toilets! Aaron is also currently writing Oxford AQA GCSE History, providing trusted expert support for the 2016 AQA GCSE specification.
