Sir Mark Grundy, KB, current Head Teacher of Shireland Language College, Sandwell, Warley, West Midlands, England, was knighted by the queen in 2006 for "his work at George Salter High School in West Bromwich, as well as his work in ICT".
"In 2003, when he took up the post of executive head, just 15% of pupils at George Salter High School gained five A*-C grades as GCSE, compared with 56% in 2005."
"Grundy admitted it had been hard work running two schools for the past three years. But he said he was able to use the experience he had gained from the past 10 years as head teacher at Shireland Language College to help him in his role as executive head at George Salter. He also said staff had benefited from his dual role as they were able to move between the two schools, gaining new career opportunities."
"Mark Grundy has worked extensively with the Department for Education and Skills (United Kingdom) to develop personalised learning portals, where pupils log onto the internet and receive information, resources and assignments specifically tailored to their individual needs." 
Mark Grundy is a father of two.
