Helena enjoys working for Wolsey Hall because she has the opportunity to meet families from all over the world and see how alternative forms of education can really support different lifestyles, interests and abilities. Helena particularly enjoys seeing student’s confidence grow over time as they become more confident independent learners who enjoy learning and achieve their full potential as a result.
Helena holds a PhD in the History of Art and Archaeology from SOAS and a Masters in Education: Culture, Language and Identity from Goldsmiths College, University of London. She helped set up an educational arts charity in London and worked for over ten years with children and young people specialising in whole school approach interventions, as well as heritage and multimedia art projects.
Helena is very active in promoting knowledge and understanding of world art histories and African arts and heritage. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, painting, researching and writing, visiting galleries and museums, watching international films and spending quality time with family and friends.
