Nicola Pearson

Nicola is the Senior Deputy Headteacher at Park Vale Academy in Nottingham. She has spent her entire career working in schools in Nottingham city that have high numbers of young people facing disadvantage.

Whenever people ask her what she enjoys most about her job, the answer is really simple – it is the students that she gets to work with. She is an English specialist and although she no longer teaches a full timetable, the highlight of her day is still the hour she gets to spend in the classroom.

“Action Tutoring, and everything it stands for, really resonates with my own commitment to social mobility – I believe this is incredibly important. I have always been incredibly impressed by the quality and commitment from everyone I have encountered at Action Tutoring which means that ultimately it provides an extremely high quality and effective resource to support our students.”
