Rebecca Front introduces us to the government's new special adviser to schools, Maria Webber, with the help of her brother, interviewer Jeremy Front.

Meet Maria Webber. Newly-appointed as the government's new special adviser for schools, Webber divides opinion. Some admire her ability to get results. Others criticise her corporate approach to education.

Reporter Jeremy Front goes to meet her at the Leather Village Academy and Knowledge Assimilation Facility (her latest school in St Albans) and witnesses, first hand, the style and ethos which has earned her the popular name the 'Head Head'.

Written by award-winning Jeremy Front with additional material by Rebecca Front.
