Julia grew up in Bath and read Medieval and Modern Languages (German and Italian) at Trinity College, Cambridge. She spent her year abroad in Bologna, Italy which cemented her love of all things italian. Upon graduation, she worked as a journalist in London, before pursuing a Master’s in English literature in Michigan, USA where she also taught undergraduate courses.
After returning to the UK, she completed a PGCE and was then delighted to accept a job teaching English at Exeter School. Passionate about the importance of effective pastoral care for the growth and wellbeing of pupils, she has worked as a deputy and head of house before taking on the role of Assistant Head (Lower School). She considers it a privilege to work with fantastic pupils and colleagues at Exeter School.
