James Handscombe

James Handscombe studied mathematics at Oxford and Harvard before training to be a teacher. He worked in schools in south Wales, Australia and south-east London before becoming the founding principal of Harris Westminster Sixth Form in 2014. He occasionally gets invited to speak at conferences and sometimes finds time to write things – mostly articles for the TES and letters to the editor of The Times, but he’s also written for Schools Week and The Spectator’s Coffee House blog.
