This issue includes our first ever “twinterview” - an interview in which responses are limited to a maximum of 140 characters. New Schools Network founder Rachel Wolf is in the hotseat, answering our questions about the Government’s flagship free schools programme.

From new schools we turn to a renewed school: ICT director Abdul Chohan describes how iPods and apps helped to transform his failing comprehensive into a thriving academy.

Of course, new technology comes with perils as well as promise. Dave Forshaw gives us a sobering head teacher’s perspective on the pitfalls of social networking, and explains how schools can help their staff avoid potentially career-ending misjudgments.

Dr Ingrid Wassenaar provides a thorough guide to preparing pupils for Oxbridge interviews, and the indomitable Ed Whittaker returns with the penultimate part of his course in classroom management, featuring a handy four-step scale of response to misbehaviour.

Teaching computer programming in schools is a hot topic, so don’t miss Sahbi Benzid’s timely case study on giving pupils a taste for engineering and software development.

Finally, Julia Crookston explains how an ambitious catering redevelopment served to feed the minds and bodies of staff and students at Plymstock School.
