Student Progress Manager

Laura is passionate about inclusive education, completing her Post Graduate Diploma in Lifelong Learning via the University of Huddersfield (specialising in Special Educational Needs and teaching music and English). Since then, she moved on to become a pastoral tutor, teaching Life Skills and English at Key Stage 5. Laura’s interest in neurodiversity began in 2013, when she led a music workshop for autistic young people, subsequently working at the Sound and Light Therapy Centre in London.  

She worked for over five years within NHS psychiatric settings, and has extensive knowledge of mental health, since supporting many young people through their challenges in various settings. Laura draws on this wealth of experience to connect with and support her students and their families.  

With a degree in music, from the University of Leeds, Laura’s musicianship has taken her to perform in Sweden, Switzerland, France, and all corners of the UK with various bands and choirs. Laura is also passionate about using singing as a tool for wellbeing and enjoys teaching others how to do so. Laura lives in Yorkshire with her husband, where they enjoy music, cooking, bike rides, and outdoor swimming when the weather allows!
