Before BHASVIC, I was at Ringmer Community College. Then, at BHASVIC between 2011 and 2013, I took A-levels in politics, early modern history, philosophy and English literature. Discussions in my politics ideology classes were fought like life depended on it - a sound education in argument. There was a travel award available at the time and the college kindly paid for me to visit a few West Country cathedrals in summer 2013. I subsequently read art history at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, and took a master's degree at the Courtauld Institute. Since 2018, I have been the researcher for a London art dealer specialising in twentieth-century British art.
