For the last seven years I have worked in education, supporting schools and other educational establishments with marketing and communications activity. I lead the press and events teams at London South Bank University and worked as the head of communications for the UK’s largest primary academy trust. I was also the head of press and social media for a national education charity. More recently I have worked with two leading EdTech companies, an international SELT provider, an AI-enabled digital learning provider and a growing group of independent preparatory schools and nurseries.
My work with schools
I have trained and worked directly with many schools, supporting headteachers and other staff with communications. My husband is also a teacher, which gives me another layer of insight and appreciation for what schools do on a daily basis. I have primary, secondary, further education and higher education experience and I am familiar with Ofsted and other challenges schools face today.
I want to help ease the burden on your staff and help you with tasks that perhaps you’re already doing, but are struggling with, or things that you would like to do, but that you just don’t have the time or resources to do.
