Matthew (Mr) Burton is an inspirational Headteacher, and star of Channel 4's multi award-winning documentary series, Educating Yorkshire. His warmth, humour, style and energetic style of teaching endeared him to audiences the country over, and the incredible breakthrough moment with Musharaf Asghar and his stammer brought millions of TV and YouTube viewers to tears across the world. Now Headteacher (and still an English teacher), he is committed to achieving the very best for every child, and to ensuring that barriers to opportunity - whatever they may be - are challenged, removed and banished, to allow every young person to be the very best they can be.
