In conversation with…

Thomasina Miers

Head of Careers, Caroline Styles, spoke to Thomasina Miers, as part of our Inspire! series where we talk to amazing individuals offering the benefit of their experiences to our pupils. The MasterChef winner discusses her early development, how she took her time, through a range of eclectic life experiences, to decide upon her career before fully applying herself to it.

Ed and Lois Jackson

Ed Jackson was destined for a hugely successful career in sport until he dived head-first into a shallow swimming pool. After several operations, he found himself in ICU only able to move his right hand. Ed and Lois tell us what it took to go from being unable to move at all, to climbing a mountain just one year after his accident. Their story is a truly inspirational one of adaptation and perseverance in hugely challenging circumstances, when life transpires to get in the way of other plans.
