School Partnership Coordinator and Inspire 9, 10 & 11 Programme Lead


I am the School Partnership Coordinator, responsible for the Inspire Scholars Programme for Years 9, 10 and 11, and the Inspire Critical Thinking programme. This is a pioneering sustained-contact programme designed to assist schools and parents and carers in supporting students to reach their full academic potential. This particular programme works with students from non-selective state schools in our link regions.

Before joining the Access and Outreach team, I taught History at a non-selective secondary school in Maidenhead, and enjoyed developing and teaching a curriculum that centred on diverse histories and historical scholarship. I was also the More Able Coordinator and Assistant Head of Sixth Form. I hope that my experience as a teacher can help to build a stronger bond with our Inspire Teacher Leads and enhance their professional development.

I qualified in Secondary History at the Institute of Education, University College London in 2015. Prior to this I completed a Master’s degree and an undergraduate degree in History at Lancaster University.
