Rachel Smith

Co-ordinator of Young Learners

About Me

Rachel’s teaching career began in France assisting pupils learning English! Thanks to her diverse and extensive teaching experience and wide-ranging professional training, Rachel is perfect for co-ordinating our programmes for young learners. As a secondary French teacher, then as Head of Department, Rachel led and nurtured a team of teachers who forged strong links between mainstream lessons and students with Special Educational Needs. Rachel is a creative teacher and has a passionate drive to help all students access education even outside of the school environment. This has led Rachel to setting up her own charity to support pupils and parents gain access to learning.

Incredibly, along side all of this, Rachel found time not just to establish her own successful clothing business, she has also designed and produced intricate wedding dresses for her clients. Rachel’s creativity doesn’t stop there, she is also a talented flautist and regularly plays in concerts.

In her free time, Rachel manages to make the most of the great outdoors and enjoys accompanying Duke of Edinburgh participants on expeditions.
