Rachel read Music at the University of Bristol and returned to Bristol to complete her PGCE in 2016. In between her two degrees, she held a post as a Graduate Residential Assistant at Taunton School International Middle School, where she worked in the boarding houses, taught Music and supported SEND students. Furthermore, she has worked at international summer schools in Taunton, working with students both pastorally and academically. Most recently, Rachel was appointed Key Stage 3 Pastoral Coordinator at 7-11 whereby she oversees the pastoral care and support for students in years 7-9. She is also a Mental Health First Aider.

Rachel studied voice with Angela Hickey during her undergraduate degree and has sung in various choirs around the south-west and in Oxford. She also plays the flute and piano. If Rachel is not doing something musical, she is out running or swimming – and is an avid park runner!
