Rachel joined City as head of prep in 2017 and has spent much of the last year preparing the ground for our exciting offsite expansion; we are opening a co-ed junior school at Gray’s Inn from September 2022. Before joining City, Rachel worked in a number of London state primary schools, in roles that focussed on rapid school improvement and curriculum design. Rachel studied geography at university and after graduating spent three years teaching English in rural Japan. Outside of school, Rachel enjoys running (very slowly!) and good restaurants, as well as spending as much time as possible doing as little as possible with her two lovely boys.
