Before joining the Trust, Andrew was Operations Director for Cognita Schools Europe, one of the world’s largest providers of independent education. Previously, he was the commercial lead at North Bridge House in Hampstead and worked in contemporary music education for Tech Music Schools (now BIMM London). He has gained significant experience in each phase of the UK education system from EYFS and Primary to Secondary, FE and HE. In these roles, he has devoted himself to maximising both the potential of each school, as well as the life chances of the children and young people in his care.
His general commercial experience extends to spells in independent film exhibition and distribution where he was responsible for significant growth and business development. He is hugely enthusiastic about the arts and sport and early in his career, worked as a professional musician.
