Having been educated at St Paul’s Girls’ School and Oxford University, Camilla believes passionately that education should be enriching and exciting. Camilla trained with the Teach First programme, giving her valuable insight into the changing landscape of British education and the impact of government policy on schools. She then taught History for eight years, latterly at Latymer Upper School, west London’s most competitive and dynamic co-educational school.
Her broad knowledge of UK independent schools enables her to support and advise families in identifying suitable schools for their children and then to prepare children for entrance examinations and interviews. Similarly, Camilla has many years of experience in advising families on university entrance, including Oxbridge, from identifying the right course and college through to impressing the admissions tutor at interview.
