Sarah Chadfield

Sarah has experience teaching students from school to undergraduate level, and has worked extensively with teachers and academic staff on different aspects of the transition to university. With a PhD (AHRC-funded) in literature, her specialism is academic writing and the role of writing in developing critical thinking.

She has worked across London on various projects to embed academic writing into KS5 teaching practice, and helped enable teachers to disseminate their learning in small group and whole school training sessions. She has also worked as part of the Thinking Writing team at Queen Mary University of London, collaborating with academic staff to help improve the student experience.

She is currently living and working in Paris.
