Where Will I Do My Pineapples? is not about a new building, it is about building a whole new school and the struggle, against all odds, to keep people and learning at the centre of the whole project.

It's about how to manage change and deal with the pressures of the day job at the same time. Perhaps more significantly, it's about people and the potential to change thousands of lives.

Written from the perspective of a senior leader, with many amusing and bizarre stories, this book describes how to keep sound educational principles at the heart of a project to build a new school.


Gill Kelly has worked in an inner city school in Swindon and two large 11-18 schools in North Somerset before becoming the principal at The City Academy, Bristol. Her previous role, as deputy head teacher of Nailsea School in North Somerset, gave her the opportunity to provide the ICT solution for the school rebuild under the BSF (Building Schools for the Future) project.
