I was born in Leeds and attended secondary school in York. After school I studied for a BA (Hons) in Politics from the University of Nottingham and stayed on for an additional year as Education Officer for the students’ union – a sabbatical role elected by other students at the university.
I travelled the world for seven months before teaching A-Level Politics and KS3/4 Citizenship at a challenging school in Harrow as part of the Teach First programme. I joined Wellington College in September 2014 where I spent two years teaching A-Level Politics, coaching several sports teams and tutoring in a boarding house. I completed a part-time MA in Education Policy at King’s College London in 2016.
After spending a year in management consultancy, I realised that education remained my passion, so I moved to the Department for Education in autumn 2017 to work on reforming technical education.
