Meet The Team

Richard Thomas

Richard founded Academic Choice in 2009 following a career in the secondary sector having held the roles of Head of year, Head of Faculty and Assistant Headteacher. A father of 4, Richard’s spare time is busy but he enjoys cycling, the outdoors in general and can still occasionally be found on the rugby pitch. Richard leads on all things operational at Academic Choice, his experience in schools, network of contacts and his current role as Vice-Chair of Governors at a local primary school all contribute to his ability to work with schools at all levels.

Kate Ready

Kate, or Brown Owl as she’s known to her Brownie pack is responsible for all things financial. Invoicing, payroll and dealing with HMRC take up most of Kate’s time. Other responsibilities include general office management, dealing wth suppliers and making sure that we don’t run out of coffee or loo roll! Out of work and apart from Brownies, Kate enjoys spending time with her 3 grown up children and her Granddaughter. Kate can also often be found walking, camping, cooking and generally leading an active life. Kate is also partial to the odd biscuit!
