Helen is the Director of External Relations at The Grammar School at Leeds. Helen is passionate about the importance of education, and she is committed to the school playing its part in making Leeds one of the best cities in the UK for children and young people. The school works with organisations across the city to provide enrichment opportunities, as well as spending more than £1m pa on means-tested bursaries to enable academically talented pupils attend the school. Whilst her academic background is humanities rather than STEM, she feels strongly that numeracy is as important as literacy in improving social mobility.
