We are delighted to announce that Alexandra Cocksworth has been appointed as Deputy Head Pastoral at LWC from September 2023. From an incredibly strong field from across the educational sector, Ali stood out as the individual to lead pastoral care at LWC into Strategy 2030.

She began her teaching career at North London Collegiate School in 2010 where she was appointed as Assistant Head of Middle School in 2012 and took over as Head of Middle School the following year, taking strategic and day-to-day responsibility for Years 7-9, as well as being Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead. She has also worked in Public Relations and school admissions and marketing prior to teaching.


Alexandra grew up in boarding schools in Kent and was a scholar at The King’s School, Canterbury, before studying English Literature at Cambridge University. She has an MA in Modern and Contemporary Literature from Birkbeck, University of London, and is a studying for a PhD in trauma, race and gender in western literature.
