Sophie Palmer

Deputy Head of English

I achieved my BA in Design and MA in Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths, University of London. I trained as a teacher of English through the Teach First programme in the UK, and taught at secondary schools in Manchester and London for several years. Before joining Park Lane, I taught at an international school in Beijing. I love working with young people and inspiring them to become articulate writers and keen readers.

In my free time I enjoy reading and writing fiction, cycling and hiking in beautiful landscapes, and practicing yoga.
