Lucy joined Bell in 2014 as Enrichment Programme Coordinator at our Cambridge school. She moved to Bell London in February 2016 and now manages our student support and welfare.

"I’m available to help students out with anything they need. The most rewarding part of my role is seeing students develop during their stay at Bell. They arrive on the first day being quite shy and every day they flourish by making friends, engaging with their course and taking part in extra activities through the Language in Action programme."
