Introducing Helen Prince - Founder

An English teacher, senior leader and advisor, as well as a mum of three, Helen has led English, literacy, and drama provision for over 20 years. Her experience has seen her take multiple roles in education, from Ofsted Inspector, to acting head, to author, advisor to several academy chains and AQA examiner.

Author and advocate

Author of a national literacy audit toolkit, Helen has worked on several cross-phase, literacy projects for schools and charities. To date, Helen has worked with over three hundred school leadership teams across the UK to improve focus on vocabulary, literacy, and English.

Addressing the Word-Gap

Since the release of the Word Gap report in 2018, Helen has been determined to highlight effective, explicit teaching of vocabulary. Her passion to address the word-gap has focused her work in this area, leading her to start developing ChatterStars as well as presenting six vocabulary webinars for both Oxford University Press and ASCL, attended by over 5000 teachers.

Presenter on Word Up: Oxford Education Podcast

Helen is now presenting a special series of the Oxford Education Podcast called “Word Up”. The seven part series sees her chat with various educational experts as they explore what they can do to bridge the Word Gap from Early Years to Key Stage 4.
