An Islington local has come “full circle” by working as a mentor at the primary school she attended.
Jade Rampasad, who grew up in the area and attended Pooles Park Primary School said she finds it “very rewarding” to be a Teach First mentor working with students in the classrooms where she was educated.
Jade achieved 12 A*-to-B GCSEs, attended Woodhouse College and has just finished a PhD in psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London.
Looking back now, working at Pooles Park Primary School has made Jade appreciate the importance of her early education.
She said: “In Teach First, they ask you what were the fundamentals that made you want to teach, and for me, it was going to that primary school and having such amazing teachers and such amazing support.”
