As Senior Deputy Headteacher for Amherst School, Grace has played a significant role in the journey of the LUNTA programme, even before we welcomed our first players in 2019. Grace has many roles in supporting the players, and leading the academic, boarding, and pastoral care provision from an Amherst School perspective. Grace has played the connection between Amherst School and LUNTA, regularly holding meetings, providing updates and monitoring progress of player academic status and well-being. Grace is currently on Maternity Leave.

Grace graduated from Reading University with a First-Class Honours degree in French Studies, then completed post-graduate studies at the University of Leicester before completing my Master’s Degree in Education Leadership and Management through the University of Roehampton. Grace has also completed the National SENCo Award and numerous Designated Safeguarding Lead courses.
