Alex has a particular interest in fair admissions processes and ensuring that top universities consistently admit students who display the highest indicators of ability and potential in the academic context of their schooling. He has considerable experience of the university preparation sector, having worked extensively with pupils from low-participation backgrounds on leading national initiatives such as the Brilliant Club, Lumina, and the Sutton Trust. As a member of the advisory board, Alex is interested predominantly in helping Independent Thinkers play a positive social role through providing its courses to students of limited means who would otherwise miss out on university preparation of any kind.
