Natalie de Silva
Director and Education Adviser
Our aim: to build a pipeline of excellence and expertise, through the services we offer and the partnerships we nurture.
Our goal: first class outcomes for every child, parent/carer and school leader.
Natalie has taught in a variety of primary and secondary schools around London, as well as working as an English Lecturer in further education. She is an experienced senior education consultant who has taught in and led a variety of urban schools over two decades.
Natalie has acquired a strategic skill set that has enabled her to design and set up two exceptional primary schools that have been graded Outstanding by Ofsted, to lead the creation of three school buildings from start to finish, and to be part of a team with the vision and drive to turn around failing schools.
When Natalie led the West London Free School Primary to a judgement of Outstanding, Ofsted reported, “The executive headteacher has created an ethos where hard work combined with care and compassion are central to the school’s work. She is skilled in nurturing individual strengths, providing support when necessary and recognising and celebrating success. Both adults and pupils flourish in everything they do.” You can read the full report of this exceptional achievement here.
