Sophie Phillipson

After studying graphic design at university Sophie spent her time creating various things including rollercoasters and sets for Merlin Entertainments. Alongside this she and her mum started HelloGrads, a website for students and graduates to support with the transition from university to real life. The business has been a fantastic experience and cemented her decision to wanting to become a teacher. Watching students and graduates leave university, highlighted the importance of a positive experience in education, this begins at primary school. She am delighted to have the chance to educate and hopefully inspire young children, to become confident, resourceful and happy people, shaping their educational journey.
